Originally introduced in the 1950's . Was designed in close cooperation between the Navy Buildings Department and Louis Poulsen. The pendant was used for many years in the builidngs of the Navy for many different applications such as canteens and offices. The Navy Pendant, which was the name at that time, was widely used because of the unique lighting properties and utility. Not until the early 1980's the product was taken out of the Louis Poulsen catalogues. The design appears timeless but has a strong connection to the New Look of the 1950s. It was reintroduced as Doo-Wop in 2012 in new colours and a brass version. In 2017 with new metal editions in copper and stainless steel. The production methods are the same and the shades are still spun by hand and completed with the fine rolled edge which gives the shades a special optical volume. Especially the brass variant challenges the craftsman as it is spun from a solid brass plate and appears polished.
