Semi is a pendant from the brand Gubi, designed by Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup, and comes in three different sizes with a diameter of 30, 47 and 60 centimeters. The pendulum fits well above a dining table as a kitchen lamp, thanks to its generous downward direct light. The form opens up for a variety of different uses, regardless of home or environment. Its design and simplicity make the lamp timeless and will always be a favorite in many homes.
The architects Torsten Thorup and Claus Bonderup sat on each side of the country and sent drawings and ideas back and forth. One evening in 1968, they received the idea of this lamp after inspired by geometric shapes with the shape of two-quarter circles. They submitted the lamp as a contest grant and won for their unique design. The lamp then won great success in the 80's with its timelessness and became a bestseller. Now, more than 40 years later, the semi-lamp hangs over the dining table and in living rooms in several homes around the world. The lamp is made of chrome.
