Description

PH Snowball pendant was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958, and it has been manufactured by Louis Poulsen since 1983. PH Snowball is characterized by a layered structure of round shades that reflect the light in an expressive yet soft manner. The glossed top surfaces and matted undersides create together a glowing effect, and the non-glossy undersides prevent reflections and glare.

PH Snowball is a smaller version of the PH Louvre pendant which Henningsen designed for the Adventist Church in Skodsborg, Denmark. With its diameter of 40 cm, PH Snowball fits beautifully above dining tables and sofa sets.

Poul Henningsen

Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) was a famous Danish designer who studied at the Technical School at Frederiksberg, Denmark, from 1911 to 1914, and then at the Technical College in Copenhagen from 1914 to 1917. He started practicing traditional functionalistic architecture, but over the years his professional interests changed to focus mainly on lighting which is what he became famous for.

He also expanded his field of occupation into areas of writing, becoming a journalist and an author. 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”. 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 fondation of the lighting theories still practiced by Louis Poulsen Lighting.
