Henning Koppel's 'BUBI' pendant light, relaunched by Danish lighting manufacturer Pandul
Danish lighting manufacturer Pandul has brought a striking piece of classic Scandinavian design back to life by relaunching Henning Koppel’s ‘BUBI’ pendant light. Designed in 1972 and produced by Louis Poulsen until 1980, the reedition by Pandul sees the original brass component of the lamp substituted with chrome, whose brilliance acknowledges the designer’s renowned body of work in silver for, among others Georg Jensen. Koppel’s ‘Silver Fish Platter’ from 1954 is perhaps his best-known work in this metal.

When Hans J. Wegner designed his futuristic Opala-series in the seventies for Hotel Scandinavia in Copenhagen, he also drew a smaller version of the Opala pendant light. For technical reasons it was impossible to manufacture this mini version to the Wegner standards for good lighting. Impossible until recently, when the Danish manufacturer Pandul developed a solution which the former manufacturer never succeeded in finding. Together with a reedition of the floor, table and bed side lamp the Opala mini pendant light is finally on the market.
