Exactly half a century after its creation in 1962, this iconic ‘The Pendant’ lamp by the late, much-praised Danish architect and designer Hans J. Wegner has recently been reissued by one of Denmark’s oldest producers of fine furniture, Carl Hansen & Søn. Featuring a distinctive, integrated handle, the elegant, height-adjustable lamp is available in three colour variations: white shade with metal handle, black shade with metal handle or brushed aluminium with black handle.
More about the design:
‘Wegner’s ceiling lamp ‘The Pendant’ – with the classification L037 – is probably the most famous of Wegner’s lamp designs. After nearly 50 years, the lamp’s integrated, handmade metal handle and height adjustment system have been imitated countlessly, but never surpassed. The basic premise is a height-adjustable lamp with an integrated handle, which makes it possible to move the lamp up and down without touching the handmade aluminium lampshade, which forms the main element of the design.’
