The rustic lighting and maritime pendant lights go hand in hand with the creations of Danish design studios Space Copenhagen & tradition. These are also the characteristic features of the fire.
When designing the Copenhagen pendant lamp, Space Copenhagen has adapted and modernized the shape of old-fashioned street lamps that once illuminated the pier of the Danish capital.
The design studio produces lights that are made of painted metal. They are suspended by one of the strings.
“The starting point was to create a design that allows us to use different metals. From a purely sculptural point of view, it should be right and create a monochrome finish. Depending on the purpose and available space, the lamp can achieve both. “, Says the founding partner Peter Bundgaard Rützou.
The light is directed downwards and provides light through a large opening on the underside of the lampshade.
“The pendant is widest in the middle and thinner at the top and bottom to ensure that the lamp has a substantial body and always protects you from direct light,” said co-founder Signe Bindslev Henriksen.
The lights are available in three sizes and five matte colors. The two smaller designs are made of steel and the larger one is made of aluminum.
The Copenhagen pendant will be presented next week at the imm in Cologne, as well as at the Maison & Objet in Paris.
This is the second cooperation of Space Copenhagen & tradition. Following the success of the Fly Lounge series, the two design studios are creating new elegant pendant luminaires.
“We are very pleased to be working with Space Copenhagen again,” says Martin Kornbek Hansen, brand manager for & tradition. “They have an extraordinary attention to detail and texture and a unique way to combine the classic with the modern.”
A luminaire of contrasts is the Copenhagen pendant that combines the maritime style with the industrial style. Its matt lacquered metal lampshade diffuses the light in a subtle and spectacular way.
“Over the years, we have produced a variety of bespoke lighting solutions for our interior projects,” says Signe Bindslev Henriksen of Space Copenhagen. “The biggest challenge in designing the Copenhagen pendant was to fulfill our own expectations in both sculptural and functional aspects.”
Originally, Space Copenhagen designed a version of the pendants, then it was expanded into a series in three sizes: 200 mm, 350 mm and 600 mm in diameter, as well as in five matte shades: red, moss green, slate gray, black and white.
With these lights, the creativity and attention to detail of the designers are quite obvious. Their collaboration is also marked by the years of experience of interior designers at Space Copenhagen. Incidentally, even the direction of light was carefully planned from the beginning. The downward light spreads out on all sides while diffused light is directed upwards.
