Notes from the Archive: Poul Henningsen designed the Snowball Pendant lamp in 1924, as part of his own scientific discovery to find a way to offer an even distribution of light without glare from a hanging pendant. His solution includes finishing the tops of the shades with a glossy finish to make the quality of the light sparkle, and the undersides are matte finish to avoid any reflections. This classic design has remained in production since its inception, and is considered a modern design icon.
