The Doo-wop pendant spreads a soft and diffuse light.
This comfortable and glare free lighting provides a soft light directed both upwards and downwards. The shade is either spun aluminum or spun brass, suspension is spun aluminum.
Originally launched in the 1950s. Designed by Louis Poulsen in close collaboration with the Navy Buildings Department. It was used for many years in a wide variety of Royal Danish Navy premises, including canteens and offices.
The Navy Pendant, as it became known, was very popular owing to its unique lighting properties and utility. It was not until the early 1980s that it was taken off production.
In recent years, more and more of the older models have come onto the market via antique shops and auctions, which generated demand and calls to resume production.
The new version is very faithful to the earlier one. While the colors have been updated to suit contemporary décor, the production methods have remained the same. All shades are hand turned before being bent up slightly at the edge to give them their special optical volume. The brass version is a challenge of craftsmanship, as it is made from a solid sheet of brass and has a high-gloss finish.
Doo-Wop is an unpretentious, simple pendant for a wide variety of applications thanks to its medium size and light emission. It is harmonious in design and perfect for hanging on its own, in rows or in clusters.
Doo-Wop will brighten up the lounge, dining room, kitchen, home office, nursery, hall, staircase or bedroom – it brings a breath of fresh air and good lighting to any room in the house.
Doo-Wop has two reflectors, the inner cone-shaped one, which provides anti-dazzle downlighting, and the outer one, which provides soft up- and downlighting. The outer shade in particular helps to create a stylish, atmospheric illumination around the pendant.
Doo-Wop is available in red/orange, pale blue, green, white, black/grey and an exclusive brass version. All the models have an E27 socket. The lamp’s design makes it possible to use several different light sources without it affecting light quality, but the use of light sources with a color index of less than 85 is not recommended, as this would have an adverse effect on color rendering and ambience in the room.
