Doo-Wop Brass Pendant Lamp | Louis Poulsen
The new version of the Doo-Wop lamp is very faithful to the earlier "Marine Pendant". While the colours have been updated to go with contemporary décor, the production methods have remained the same. The shades are turned by hand before being bent up slightly at the edge to give them their special optical volume.
The brass version is a challenge of craftsmanship, as it is made from a solid sheet of brass and has a high-gloss finish.
Next to the exclusive brass edition, the Doo-Wop pendant is available in red/orange, pale blue, green, white, black/grey.
The lamp’s design makes it possible to use several different light sources without it affecting light quality.
Marine Pendant history
Originally launched in the 1950s. Designed by Louis Poulsen in close collaboration with the Navy Buildings Department. It was used for many years in a wide variety of Royal Danish Navy premises, including canteens and offices.
The Navy Pendant, as it became known, was very popular owing to its unique lighting properties and utility. It was not until the early 1980s that it disappeared from Louis Poulsen's catalogues.
In recent years, more and more of the older models have come onto the market via antique shops and auctions which has generated demand and calls to resume production.
Doo-Wop Light Concept
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.
Doo-Wop is an unpretentious, simple pendant for a wide variety of applications thanks to its medium size and light emission. It is harmonious in design and perfect for hanging on its own, in rows or in clusters.
Doo-Wop will brighten up the lounge, dining room, kitchen, home office, nursery, hall, staircase or bedroom – it brings a breath of fresh air and good lighting to any room in the house.
