Originally introduced in the 1950s, the Doo-Wop Pendant was created in close collaboration with Buildings Department and was used for many years in the Navy for many different applications such as canteens or offices. The Navy Pendant, which was its name as that time, was widely used because of the unique lighting properties and utility. Not until the early 1980s was the product taken out of the Louis Poulsen catalogues. In recent years, more and more of the classic editions have been sold through antique stores and auctions.
This has increased demand and encouraged Louis Poulsen to re-launch the products. The new version is very close to the original and is made with the same production methods, however the colors have been updated to correspond to the colors of the time. The shades are still spun by hand and completed with the fine rolled edge, which gives the shades a special optical volume. The brass variant challenges the craftsman as it is spun from a solid brass plate.
The Doo-Wop Pendant is available in spun Brass or in White, Dark Grey, Red, Green or Blue powder-coated aluminum. The canopy is white with a 144" white PVC cord. Certified cULus. Bulb is not included.
Measures: 11.1" Diameter x 9.7"H; E26 or A19 Bulb, 60 Watt Max (bulb not included)

In the 1920s Louis Poulsen collaborated with renown and respected lighting designer Poul Henningsen to create a lighting philosophy based on function, comfort and ambience.
The essence of Louis Poulsen is to create human-friendly lighting—comfortable lighting that makes people beautiful and creates an excellent atmosphere. The philosophy continues to this day to clearly influence the minimal and functional product design—with a focus on human well-being and perception of artificial light—to help create unique lighting environments. Louis Poulsen's product designs are also admired for their quality and lasting appeal, with the result that products remain contemporary year after year.
Today the company is a leading international lighting manufacturer that produces simple, beautiful products that suit types of architecture from all cultures, both new and old.
