When most people think of Hans J. Wegner, they think of his iconic pieces such as the CH24 Wishbone Chair or the CH25 Easy Chair. What many don’t know is that Wegner was also a brilliant designer of modern lighting. Even the Wegner Wikipedia page says nothing of his beautiful lamps.
In 1962—a year before he created the CH07 Shell Chair—Wegner designed “The Pendant,” an innovative hanging lamp with a sleek modern look and an adjustable length. It has been in continuous production ever since.
Wegner went on to create the futuristic Opala Series, complete with table lamps, pendants, and floor lamps.
It has been relatively difficult for the public to find these iconic designs … Until now. Recently Carl Hansen & Son teamed up with longtime Wegner manufacturer Pandul to offer “The Pendant” and the Opala Series to a wider audience.
At Danish Design Store, we are excited to announce that starting on Saturday, September 1, we will begin shipping these beautiful lamps. Pre-orders are now being accepted.
In addition to the Wegner Lighting Collection, Danish Design Store will also offer the entire Carl Hansen & Son / Pandul Lighting Collection. These lamps include pieces by Jørgen Gammelgaard, Henning Koppel, and Erik Magnussen. As with the Wegner lamps, these products all ship starting September 1.
