Description

Poul Henningsen’s Snowball Pendant (1924) is as much about mathematics as it is about light. The shapes in this light are precisely aligned so that every surface receives a ray of light at exactly the same angle. These rays of light are then reflected, the degree of which is controlled by Henningsen’s careful placement of matte or glossy finish. The result is optimal and even distribution of light that’s completely without glare. While the form of the Snowball is surprisingly modern for 1924, Henningsen did not design this lamp to celebrate the new technology of the electric light bulb. Rather, his goal was to recreate a quality of light he’d experienced from petroleum lanterns, which were used in the small Danish town he grew up in because there was no electricity. As with all of Henningsen’s lighting, his aim was to “work scientifically and make lighting more beautiful.” UL Listed. Manufactured in Denmark by Louis Poulsen.
