Semi emerged in 1968 from the creative partnership between Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup, as a corrective to the cliched cozy image of Nordic style. They wanted to create a lamp with sharply clean lines and, after recognition from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, it went on to become a Danish best-seller in the ‘80s. The arch-shaped metal shade, in a selection of enameled tones, creates a diffused cone of light. Ideal over a dining table or kitchen work surface.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
