Concept

Wegner’s ceiling lamp ‘The Pendant’ – with the classification L037 – is probably the most famous of Wegner’s lamp designs. It was created in 1962 and has been in production ever since. 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.

‘The Pendant’ is available in three colour combinations: white shade with metal handle, black shade with metal handle and brushed aluminium with black handle. Recommended retail prices start at € 623, excl. VAT.

Hans J. Wegner is the basis for the partnership, which has proven so successful that the through two manufacturers of Wegner’s designs have now joined forces to increase awareness of all of Pandul’s designers, including Henning Koppel, Jørgen Gammelgaard and Erik Magnussen. Pandul’s product range is marketed Carl Hansen & Son under the brand ‘Pandul by Carl Hansen & Søn’.

In addition to collaborating with Pandul and manufacturing Hans J. Wegner furniture classics, Carl Hansen & Son also owns the renowned furniture manufacturer Rud. Rasmussens Møbelsnedkerier in Copenhagen, which produces furniture designed by, among others, Kaare Klint and Mogens Koch. The furniture is marketed under the brand ‘Rud. Rasmussen by Carl Hansen & Søn’. Carl Hansen & Son’s entire portfolio is solidly anchored in the Danish design tradition.
