The iconic Semi was created in 1968, while Claus Bonderup & Torsten Thorup were still students. The design won the Royal Danish Academy’s first prize and was very well received at the lighting fair in Milan. What makes this pendant so unique and immensely popular is the simplicity of its geometrical form: a perfect lampshade brought back to the essence of its purpose.

Bonderup (1943) and Thorup (1944) studied together at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture and kept working together for the greatest part of their career. They designed the Arktikum museum in Finland, watches and in-store displays for Georg Jensen, and one of their most impressive accomplishments was the realization of the entire harbour area in Helsingør in Denmark.
