Poul Henningsen PH Snowball Lamp
  • Poul Henningsen PH Snowball Lamp
- Smaller version of the PH Louvre - 8 shades mounted on 3 legs - Top of shades is glossy - creating sparkling light - Underside are matte - avoiding reflections - Glare free and even illumination

PH Snowball is a glare-free luminaire. The geometry of the PH Snowball ensures that all the illuminated surfaces of the shades are hit by light rays at the same angle, creating optimum, even lighting performance.

White, wet painted.

The PH Snowball is considered a smaller version of the PH Louvre made for the Adventist Church in Skodsborg, Denmark. But unlike the PH Louvre, the number of shades is reduced to just eight mounted on three legs - and the diameter of the fixture is also reduced due to the fact that it was intended for lower ceiling spaces.

This fixture was first launched together with the PH 5 and the PH Artichoke but it did not get the same attention as the other two pendants. However, as a result of the PH Snowball being re-drawn and re-introduced in 1983 this fixture has come alive again. Today it is made with white shades glossed on the top and matted on the underside. The top of the shades are glossy in order to create sparkling light. The undersides of the shades are matte to avoid reflections of the light source.
