Semi pendant - 60 cm

Claus Bonderup & Torsten Thorup | Gubi


The Semi lamp was designed in 1968, the product of the creative partnership between the two architecture students, Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup. Today, the iconic, elegant ‘Semi’, with its distinctive arch-shape, is recognised worldwide.

Product Information
The lamp is a unique pendant, inspired by geometric form and based on two quarter-circles put together, back-to-back. With its sharp, clean lines and geometric form, Bonderup and Thorup’s Semi lamp directly challenged the ‘cosy era’ that was dominating Denmark at the time.

The lamp was submitted for a competition at the Royal Danish academy of Fine arts School of Architecture and won first prize. With its lightness of form and unique, timeless design, the Semi lamp went on to achieve great success in the 1980’s and became, at that time, the best-selling Danish design.
