Louis Poulsen Doo-Wop

August 27, 2012

The choice of lighting plays a very important part in the final look of any interior design scheme. Get it right and the lighting will bring the scheme together, and should provide both atmosphere and task lighting when needed.

Louis Poulsen have been manufacturing light fittings for over 70 years and are responsible for some of the most iconic lights available. They are about to relaunch an old favourite, the Navy Pendant, which was last seen in their catalogues in the 1980s. The new version will be called Doo-Wop.

The original version of this pendant was launched in the 1950s and it was designed for use in Danish Navy buildings. The fitting contained two reflectors, one providing downlighting with the outer shade providing a softer complimentary uplight. Following the interest in vintage products as the older models have become fashionable again Louis Poulsen wanted to offer the product to a new generation.

Now updated to a more contemporary colour palette they are still manufactured in the same way as the original. Hand crafted the new Doo-Wop will become a classic in the future.

The Doo-Wop would be a great pendant to use above a worktop as shown. They would provide a good task lighting source but also bring a softness into the kitchen. Alternatively you could hang them either side of a bed to give a modern take on bedside lamps.

The pendant is available in 5 colours and also in a brass finish.  The coloured shades will retail at £250 and will be available from next month.
