Gold metal, white lacquered on the inside. Vintage condition, gold plating is a little faded.
The widely loved Semi, produced by Fog & Mørup and later Lyfa, 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. The Semi derives its name from the way it was drawn: The leftover shape between two half circles became the blueprint for an iconic design.
This gold version has the air of a musical instrument, but a silent one that spreads a brilliant light.
