Doo-wop Suspension Lamp

from Louis Poulsen

doo-wop suspension lamp

doo-wop suspension lamp

Design Louis Poulsen & Navy Buildings dept., 1950's
Spun aluminum or brass shade, stainless steel
Made in Denmark by Louis Poulsen

Doo-Wop was originally introduced in the 1950's and was designed in collaboration with the Navy Buildings Department and Louis Poulsen. The Navy Pendant, which was the name at that time, was widely used in the buildings of the Navy for its unique lighting properties and utility. The product was taken out of the Louis Poulsen catalog in the early 1980's. In recent years, more and more demand pushed Louis Poulsen to re-launch the product. The new version is very close to the original. However, the colors have been updated to correspond to the colors of the time, while the production methods are the same. The shades are still spun by hand and completed with the fine rolled edge which gives the shades a special opticial volume. The brass, copper & chrome variant challenges the craftsman as it is spun from a solid plate and appears polished.

The fixture primarily provides a downward directed soft light by means of the white lacquered inner conical reflector. The outer reflector, the main shade, contributes to directing the light up- and downwards, while at the same time spreading the soft diffuse light. The inside of the main shade is illuminated through an opening in the inner conical reflector.
