Lighting - Doo-Wop - Louis Poulsen

Doo-Wop is a relaunch of the Navy Pendant, which was designed by Louis Poulsen and the Danish naval defense’s building department. The lamp was used in the naval defense’s quarters from 1950 to 1980.The fitting contained two reflectors, one providing downlighting with the outer shade providing a softer complimentary uplight, which creates a soft and focused light.


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 room. 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.
