Description

Pandul’s Bubi pendant lamp features a fascinatingly ambiguous form – one might see it as an acorn, or a spaceship, or a spinning top, for example. The luminaire was designed by Henning Koppel, who is especially known as a designer of sleek silver jewellery, tableware and watches. Bubi's flowing lines undoubtedly also bring to mind a pendant necklace.

The Bubi pendant charms both as a single luminaire and in a showy row or cluster of several lamps. The delicate pendant is beautiful from any direction and can therefore be hung at any height, for example over a coffee table. The distinctive shape of the Bubi pendant lamp also makes it surprisingly functional: the metal top and its protruding edge make it possible to turn the lamp upside down and place it on a bookshelf, for example, as a table lamp!

Henning Koppel

Henning Koppel (1918-1981) was a Danish designer and well-known as an earlier pioneer of functionalism in design. He studied drawing and aquarelle, and later on concentrated on sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy and then in Paris. Koppel came from a Jewish family and like many Danish Jews lived in Sweden during the Second World War.

While there he designed for Orrefors Glassworks, internationally renowned for their unique glass articles, art glass and household glass. When he went back to Denmark, Koppel began working at Georg Jensen, which marked his start in jewellery, hollowware and flatware design. His first works – a series of necklaces and bracelets resembling whale vertebrae and microscopic organisms – were small masterpieces in imaginative modeling. Henning Koppel was in every way groundbreaking and his jewellery was unlike anything ever created at the silver smithy in its first 40 years. During his carrier, Henning Koppel created an astonishing range of work: from stainless steel cutlery to magnificent one-off signature pieces such as the silver and crystal chandelier he designed to celebrate the 75-year anniversary of Georg Jensen in 1979. The HK pitcher and Caravel cutlery are among the most famous pieces he designed for Georg Jensen. Elegant and functional, both the pitcher and Caravel cutlery were originally produced in sterling silver, but are nowadays manufactured from stainless steel. Koppel designed also clocks and lighting for Louis Poulsen and postage stamps for the Danish Post Office. During his life, he won many awards including three Gold Medals at the Milan Triennial, the International Design Award of the American Institute of Designers and the Lunning Prize. Koppel’s works are represented in numerous museums worldwide.
