The PH Snowball is considered the smaller version of the PH Louvre. made for the Adventist Church in Skodsborg, Denmark. But unlike the PH Louvre, the number of shades is reduced to just eight mounted on three legs - and the diameter of the fixture is also reduced due to the fact that it was intended for lower ceiling spaces.

Today it is made with white aluminum shades glossed on the top and matted on the underside. The top of the shades are glossy in order to create sparkling light. The undersides of the shades are matt to avoid reflections of the light source.

PH Snowball is a 360-degree glare free luminaire. The geometry of the PH Snowball is designed to ensure all the illuminated surfaces of the shades are struck by the rays of light in the same angle, creating even illumination.

He never graduated as an architect but started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, which led to a focus mainly on lighting which is what he is most famous for. His field of occupation also included areas of writing and.
