Semi pendant

The arc of the lamp is enameled metal with a shape based on two quarters of a circle. It is available in the colors: matt black, matt white, glossy orange, glossy anthracite and glossy blue grey and in two sizes: H:15 x Ø30 cm and H:24 x Ø47 cm. The Semi pendant versions in brass and metalic was launched in 2013.

About the Semi collection The Semi pendant was designed in 1968 as a product of the creative partnership between two architecture students, Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup. Reacting against the ‘cosy era’ that was dominating Denmark at the time, Bonderup and Thorup wanted to create a lamp that incorporated sharp, clean lines and a geometric shape. Their design was submitted for a competition at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture and won first prize. Semi is a unique pendant lamp, based on two quarter-circles put together, back-to-back. With its its distinctive arch-shaped, enamelled metal shade, lightness of form and unique, timeless design, the elegant Semi lamp achieved great success in the 1980’s and became, at that time, the best-selling Danish design, gaining worldwide recognition and iconic status.
