Design by Louis Poulsen Lighting A/S in cooperation with the Navy Buildings Department.
By Louis Poulsen.
Originally introduced in the 1950s, the Doo-Wop Pendant Light was designed in close cooperation between the Navy Buildings Department and Louis Poulsen. The pendant was used for many years in Navy buildings for many different applications. The Navy Pendant, which was the name at 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 catalogs. In recent years, more and more of the old editions have been sold again throughout antique stores and auctions. This has caused a demand and Louis Poulsen has been asked to re-launch various products.
The newly re-named Doo-Wop Pendant Light is very close to the original. However, the colors have been updated to respond to the colors of this new period, while the production methods remain the same. 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 solid brass plate and appears polished.

Louis Poulsen's approach to architectural development began with its collaboration with famous and well respected lighting designers, like Poul Henningsen. Together they created a lighting and product philosophy encompassed by the words "function", "comfort" and "ambience". This philosophy continues to influence simple and functional product design, which focuses on well-being and the perception of artificial light, which leads to the creation of unique lighting environments. Louis Poulsen's approach to lighting lies in a very strict and uncompromising product philosophy grounded in simplicity. All elements must serve a light-related purpose. The result is a product line that displays simple and discreet designs ideally suited to all types of architecture across cultural styles.
