Semi Pendant Light by Bonderup and Thorup for GUBI
The Semi Pendant is a unique pendant lamp, based on two quarter-circles put together, back-to-back. It's distinctive arch-shaped, enamelled metal shade creates a diffused, cone-shaped light, ideal over a dining table or kitchen work surface. With its lightness of form, unique timeless design and range of colours and sizes, the Semi Pendant is extremely versatile and well suited to both private and public spaces.
Designed in 1968 as a reaction against the soft organic forms, the so-called 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. In the 1980’s the pendant achieved great success and became, at that time, the best-selling Danish design and gained worldwide recognition and iconic status.
