 Open the catalog to page 3

PANDUL Pandul is the sole licensed manufacturer world wide of lamps designed by four famous Danish architects and designers: Furniture Designer and Architect Hans J. Wegner, Professor and Architect Jørgen Gammelgaard, Artist and Sculptor Henning Koppel and Industrial Designer Erik Magnussen. A lamp in the Pandul Collection needs to have a unique design, must be excellent for its primary purpose and be timeless in the sense that you cannot quite identify whether it was designed three years or three decades ago. Like much good music, our classic designs have no age. Photos: Piotr / Lennart...

HENNING KOPPEL Henning Koppel, the world-famous Danish designer of the BUBI lamp, was first and foremost an artist.

 Open the catalog to page 7

HANS J. WEGNER Hans J. Wegner was born in 1914 in Tønder, Denmark. In 1936, at the age of 22, he attended the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen, later returning as a teacher. In 1943 he opened his own design studio and created the Chinese Chair, which, along with his 1949 Round Chair, formed the basis for many of his later chairs. The Round Chair became known simply as The Chair. While The Chair is probably the main icon of Wegner’s career, the Wishbone Chair is widely considered to be his most successful design. Although Wegner is best known for his chairs, he was also a brilliant...

OPALA PENDANT Design: Hans J. Wegner

 Open the catalog to page 9

OPALA PENDANT The Opala range was designed by Hans J. Wegner for Hotel Scandinavia in Copenhagen in the early seventies. A distinct, almost futuristic design, a superb light quality combined with the very best materials and craftsmanship have created a true classic for both hotels, public spaces, offices and private homes. On his original drawings Wegner defined three sizes for the Opala pendant. The MIDI size was for Hotel Scandinavia but the smallest one, Opala Mini, was launched for the very first time as late as in 2007.

OPALA TABLE Originally Wegner designed only one size of the Opala Table light: The Opala MIDI designed for The Hotel Scandinavia in Copenhagen. The smaller one however – now known as Opala MINI Table Lamp – was more or less forgotten till it was (re-)discovered in 2006 that Wegner had developed this version of his Opala table lamp for the Scanticon Conference Centre in New Jersey, USA. It became immediately clear to everybody that this long forgotten version of the Opala lamp had a huge potential and in 2007 PANDUL launched the Opala MINI Table Lamp

OPALA FLOOR The large Opala Floor called the MAXI was specifically designed for use at the Hotel Scandinavia in Copenhagen. The smaller one – The Opala MIDI Floor – came however much later and was one of Hans J. Wegners last wishes for his Opala range. According to his wife, Hans J. Wegner had for a very long time wanted to see an edition of his Opala Floor lamp (MAXI) with a smaller shade. In 2007 we made a prototype of the present Opala MIDI floor light and presented to his wife, as Wegner was at that time living in a nursing home. A few days after this presentation Mrs. Wegner told us...

WALL VIP Due to the unique 360 degrees multi-adjustable shade of the VIP range the WALL VIP appears to be two different lamps: One looking like a well-known kind of wall mounted reading lamp and one like a decorative fixture giving a corona of indirect light on the wall. Adjust the WALL VIP in height, side-wards or tilt the shade. You decide how to use it.
