Description

Pandul's Wegner pendant lamp is a classic design by Hans J. Wegner from 1962. “The Pendant”, as the luminaire is also called, has been in continuous production since its launch, and over the years it has achieved the status of a design icon – the lamp’s success is proof of Wegner’s skills as a lighting designer although he is most famous for his chair designs.

The gist of Wegner’s The Pendant lies in the decorative handle that allows the lamp to be pulled to the desired height without touching the shade itself. The handle is by no means only functional, but also serves as a sophisticated, distinctive detail in the otherwise rather reduced design of the pendant lamp. Thanks to the handle, The Pendant fits particularly well over a table, for example, where it can be pulled to the perfect height, but the classic look makes the pendant easily adaptable to a variety of settings. The Wegner pendant lamp is handmade in Denmark.

Hans J. Wegner

Hans J. Wegner (1914–2007) is a world-famous Danish designer known especially for his numerous chair designs. Wegner had a special ability to combine functionality and aesthetics; many of his designs are characterized by playful or poetic features.

Born in Tønder, southern Denmark, Wegner developed a fascination for wood as a material already as a child: he enjoyed wood carving and often spent time in museums, looking for inspiration for his sculptures, and he even took up an apprenticeship with master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg at a young age. Although Wegner began his career as a carpenter in the 1930s, in 1936 he decided to study design – a decision the modern design world is very happy for. Wood remained Wegner's favourite material throughout his prolific career, and most of his chairs are made of wood with the natural material often playing the main role in the design.

Wegner considered ergonomics to be one of the most essential aspects of designing a chair – after all, it was a piece of furniture with which the human body could be in contact for long periods of time. During his career spanning several decades, Wegner designed up to 500 different chair models, many of which have become coveted design classics not only due to their beautiful design but also their superb functionality. Perhaps the most famous of his design is the Wishbone chair, which has been in continuous production since 1950.

Wegner is known as one of the pioneers of Danish modernism and one of the key figures of the Golden Age of Nordic design. During his career, he received a multitude of design awards, including the Lunning Prize as well as the Grand Prix in the Milan Triennale in 1951, the Prince Eugen Medal in 1961 and the C. F. Hansen Medal in 1980.
