Architects Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup were students at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts when they co-designed their first lamp. Craving pure, crisp geometric shapes in a design world dominated by soft organic forms, they created the Semi Pendant (1968) by placing two circles back to back, producing an elegant shape in the negative space between with a diameter matching that of each circle. Timeless by design, “it just has that simplicity of form, which cannot be slotted into any single style period,” says Bonderup. It’s not surprising that Semi took first prize in the School of Architecture’s 1968 design competition with its satisfying, perfectly balanced proportions. Bulb (not included): half-mirror incandescent 40W/120V/E14 for small lamp, half-mirror incandescent 60W/120V/E27 for others. UL Listed. Made in Denmark. 

Ceiling rose is matte black for all pendants except matte white pendant; ceiling rose for matte white pendant is matte white.
