PH Snowball Pendant light

Due to their impressive shape and sophisticated function, the furnishing experts at TAGWERC recommend the PH Snowball pendant light as a light object. The pendant lamp PH Snowball is easy to use everywhere: in high and low rooms, in old or new buildings, in the foyer, a gallery as an eye-catcher over a table and even as a basic lighting in small rooms or corridors.

Eight horizontally arranged lamellas form the luminous element and completely conceal the light source in the heart of the PH Snowball pendant luminaire. In this way, the pendant light PH Snowball provides an absolutely glare-free, indirect light. The PH Snowball is not only functional but also very decorative. Due to the special bends of the individual slats, part of the light is directed upwards towards the ceiling. However, most of the radiance is directed and reflected downwards. The ingenious lighting concept, conceived by Pouls Henningsen, means that the PH Snowball pendant light not only provides light, but also illuminates itself at the same time. With the pendant lamp PH Snowball by Louis Poulsen you create an impressive eye-catcher.
