Poul Henningsen designed his first lamps back in 1925-1926 for an exhibition in Paris. He worked with Louis Poulsen up until his death in 1967. Throughout his life, PH sought to create glare-free light that could be directed wherever it was needed and created soft shadows with an incandescent bulb as its light source. Poul Henningsen designed the PH Snowball in 1958, when it was shown alongside the PH 5 at the Danish Museum of Art & Design. However, PH 5 stole all the PH Snowball did not gain any attention at this event as PH 5 stole all the attention and PH Snowball was not re-launched and manufactured until 1983.
The PH Snowball pendant can be used for general lighting in smaller rooms. The placement of the fixture’s eight shades and its curvature produces a special quality of light. The PH Snowball emits a diffuse light without glare.
