Originally created in the late 1960s, the BT1001 Pendant Lamp No 1 was designed by prolific Danish architects Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup. The design is part of a three-lamp series inspired by simple geometry and the interplay of light and shadow. \n\nPendant Lamp No 1 features a clean, conical silhouette that is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. Available in lacquered steel or polished brass, this timeless piece will complement modernist and contemporary designs alike with its unadorned, functionalist form.
Torsten Thorup (born 1944) and Claus Bonderup (born 1943) both graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Architecture in 1969 and subsequently went to work together at Danish architect, Henning Larsen's studio. The two architects teamed up professionally and worked together for the majority of their careers. Together they've designed watches and in-store displays for Georg Jensen, the Arktikum museum in Finland and the harbour area in Elsinore, where they designed everything, from urban planning to the ticket offices.
