Whether classic and simple in the office or colourful in the children’s room or kitchen - the Semi pendant lamp by Gubi blends in in any surroundings with its curved design. It also leaves an effective impression when grouped together with other differently sized Semi lamps.
The Semi pendant lamp was a reaction to the cosiness trend in Danish design in the 1960s. The designers Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup responded to this with the clear lines and geometric shapes of their lamps.
The Semi lamp, which is produced by the Danish company Gubi, became world famous for its curved, enamelled metal. Its shaped is based on a quadrant. The lampshade is composed of two quadrants - giving the lamp its name Semi. It’s not for nothing that the designers used geometric shapes, such as circles, triangles and squares as their greatest source of inspiration.
Initially the Semi pendant lamp was designed for an industrial competition at the Danish architecture school in 1968. Both designers Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup won the competition thanks to the unique design of their lamp.
The stylish Semi pendant lamp became a modern design classic soon afterwards. Even at that time it interacted perfectly with the organic furniture by designers such as Verner Panton and Eero Saarinen and still today looks nice in both private and public spaces.
The Semi pendant lamp is available in three different sizes and colours.
