The BT1091 Confetti Pendants were designed by Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup. The prolific Danish architects created the double-pendant design as part of a series of geometric-inspired lighting, completed in 1970. The Confetti Pendants – available in polished brass or lacquered steel – feature slim cone-shaped shades that complement the functionalist forms of the two other lamps in the series. All three designs are fitted with a half-mirror lightbulb set lower than the shade, chosen by Bonderup and Thorup for its light-reflecting properties.
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.
