Semi is a unique pendant lamp, based on two quarter-circles put together, back-to-back.
With its its distinctive arch-shaped, enamelled metal shade, lightness of form and unique, timeless design, the elegant Semi lamp achieved great success in the 1980s and became, at that time, the best-selling Danish design, gaining worldwide recognition and iconic status.
