Classic-simple in an office or colourful in a children’s room or in the kitchen – the Semi pendant lamp from Gubi fits in every coherence with its curved design. It also has an impressive effect in a group.
The Semi pendant lamp has been a reaction to the trend of comfort in Danish design in the 1960es. The designers Claus Bonderup and Torsten Throup answered with contraire clear lines and geometric forms with their lamp.
The Semi lamp, which is produced by the Danish company Gubi, became world famous for the swung enameled metal. Its form is based on a fourth-sphere. The shade of the lamp is composed of two fourth-spheres – which is why it has the name “Semi”. Not for nothing the designers used geometric forms, such as spheres, triangles and squares as greatest inspiration source.
Initially the pendant lamp Semi has been designed for an industrial competition at the Danish architecture school in 1968. Both designers Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup won the competition for the unique design of their lamp.
The stylish Semi pendant soon became a design classic afterwards. It already interacted perfectly with the organic furniture of Verner Panton and Eero Saarinen in that time, and it still suits public rooms without a doubt.
The Semi pendant lamp is available in three different sizes and colours.
