Mixing metals was once a design no-go, but is now a go-to way of adding depth and visual interest. Contrasting metals complement and bring out the best in each other. Cool metallic tones, such as steel, bring a clean, modern aesthetic to a space, whilst warmer tones, such as copper and brass, are inviting and flattering. A mixture of both cold and warm tones provide a distinctive look, creating a modern flair with a touch of glamour, or minimalism with an inviting appeal that indicates a refined edginess. Single or mixed, the new versions of Doo-Wop in metal have been created to be adaptable, edgy and elegant.
The Doo-Wop design perfectly illustrates how to shape light with the use of materials, colours and form. The inner shade through which the light shines gives out a subtle diffused light, contrasting with the solid outer shade that shapes the light, directs it up- and downwards, while at the same time spreading a soft diffused light.
The pendant was originally introduced in 1952 and designed in close partnership with the Danish Navy Buildings Department. Exploiting the difficult spinning technique developed by the Louis Poulsen craftsmen, the pendant is an example of Louis Poulsen’s world-famous expertise and creates almost impossible shapes out of a simple sheet of metal.
The range now consists of a painted dark grey and a white, in addition to three metal versions: brass and the new steel and copper. With the characteristic and balanced outline of the design, these pendants form a harmonious, strong and contemporary family.
The new metal versions will be available in stores from September 2017.
