Design by Poul Henningsen, 1924.
By Louis Poulsen.

PH Snowball is a 360-degree glare-free luminaire. The geometry of the PH Snowball is designed to ensure that all the illuminated surfaces of the shades are struck by the rays of light at the same angle, creating even illumination. The tops of the shades are glossy, creating sparkling light. The undersides are matte, avoiding reflections.

The PH Snowball Pendant Light emits a comfortable glare-free, diffused light. When the light is switched on, the top portion is illuminated while the bottom part remains dark. The PH Snowball Pendant Light is composed of spun aluminum shades with a chrome painted frame and housing. Ships with a white canopy and 12 feet of white PVC power cord.

UL Listed.

Louis Poulsen

Formed over seventy years ago when renowned Danish architect, Poul Henningsen, came together with Louis Poulsen and began to combine a brilliant mix of technology and design to craft influential lighting.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen was born in Copenhagen to the famous Danish actress Agnes Henningsen. He never graduated as an architect, but studied at The Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark from 1911-14, and then at Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914-17.

He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting. He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. For a short period at the beginning of WWII, he was the head architect of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. But like many other creative people, he was forced to flee Denmark during the German occupation but soon became a vital part of the Danish colony of artists living in Sweden.

His lifelong collaboration with Louis Poulsen Lighting began in 1925 and lasted until his death. To this day, Louis Poulsen Lighting still benefits from his genius. Poul Henningsen was also the first editor of the company magazine "NYT". The CEO of Louis Poulsen at the time, Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen, gave the magazine to PH as a gift because he had been terminated from the Danish newspaper he worked for (his opinions were too radical).

Poul Henningsen's pioneering work concerning the relations between light structures, shadows, glare, and color reproduction, compared to man's need for light remains the foundation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUBLIME I waffled between purchasing a pair of these or a pair of the PH 5's for months. My architect finally convinced me the Snowballs' exponential awesomeness was worth the higher price point. They arrived last week and are simply stunning. He was right.... I have no regrets!

Is an incandescent bulb the only option?

Asked by: Joel Wasser
Thanks for your interest in this design. While the fixture is intended for a 200W 120V medium base incandescent, you may also use a bulb of a different kind if you prefer. You could swap it for a Halogen or an LED of a comparable wattage if it has an E26 base as well and does not exceed the rating. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you.
