Description from Design Within Reach

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, E12 base, 40W max for small lamp; half-mirror incandescent, E26 base, 60W max for others. UL Listed. Made in Denmark.

All aluminum pendants include a matte black ceiling rose except the matte white pendant, which includes a matte white ceiling rose.

Brass and chrome pendants include brass and chrome ceiling roses, respectively.
