Copenhagen Pendant SC6 by Space Copenhagen for &Tradition
Updated: Jan 25, 2020
The Copenhagen Pendant is an exercise in contrasts. Combining the classic and the modern, the maritime and the industrial.
It produces a spectacular light, which shines from both its top and bottom. “Downwards it secures an even, solid light and upwards it diffuses the light, adding to the atmosphere of the ceiling,” says Signe Bindslev Henriksen, co-founder of Space Copenhagen. The subtle uplight highlights the soft plated crown of the pendant, which is both a sleek, integral part of its overall structure and a nod to the typology of maritime pendant lights that inspired the design.
The pendant’s matte-lacquered metal lampshade disperses the light in a subtle but spectacular way, resembling the classic gaslight feel of the bleak Copenhagen piers. The Copenhagen Pendant offers a contemporary take on its predecessors, however employing subtle textural contrasts and striking a more sculptural form. “Depending on the choice of colour and size, The Copenhagen Pendant will flow into various settings, such as private homes, restaurants and offices,” says Space Copenhagen’s other founding partner, Peter Bundgaard Rützou.
