The stylish SEMI pendant soon became a design classic after its two designers Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup won the industrial design competition in 1967 at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen. It was already during their studies that the two architect students developed the SEMI pendant, which is world known for its curved enamelled metal that forms after one fourth of a circle. The shape of the lamp and the crown silver light bulb give the light a unique spread in the room. At that time each SEMI pendant was manufactured by hand by a trained metal worker. The SEMI pendant is today a design classic, which hangs beautifully in both private homes and public spaces.
