Divan 2 Brass

In 1962, Simon P. Henningsen designed a new pendant for the Divan 2 restaurant in Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen. The restaurant offered spectacular views over the garden lake, and at night, the pendant’s mirrored surfaces were designed to catch the light from the colorful exterior lighting and the lake. When it was time for the famous fireworks, the lights inside the restaurant would dim, and the lamps ascended towards the ceiling to allow guests an unobscured view of the show. DIVAN 2 was bestowed with several Danish and international design awards. In 1963, it was exhibited at the Louvre in Paris.

DIVAN 2 is known and loved for its colorful interplay of light, creating a captivating experience that changes with the viewer’s position. The light source is obscured and completely glare-free. The cascading effect happens when the light hits the vertically arranged trapezoids. On the inside, they are lacquered in different colors, causing a fascinating display of light to flow into the room. 

The product family consists of pendants in four different sizes. Each size is available in either solid brass or a polished stainless steel version with multicoloured trapezoids (red, blue, purple, beige, and teal).

The new edition of the DIVAN 2 pendant in solid brass shimmers and glows without being flashy. Thanks to the carefully positioned trapezoids, the pendant provides a comfortable glare-free light while cascading indirect light into the room by reflecting the white surfaces on the inside and the brass surfaces on the outside.

Simon P Henningsen 1920 - 1974

As the son of legendary Danish architect and lighting designer, Poul Henningsen, Simon P. Henningsen learned about lighting from an early age. Not just about the different types of light but also how each one brings distinct qualities. The two worked together on various design tasks for the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen and in 1948, Simon succeeded his father and became chief architect in the amusement park. In 1962, Simon P. Henningsen unveiled the Divan 2 pendant – a highly unique and spectacular lamp named after the famous restaurant in Tivoli. The pendant was later bestowed with several Danish and international awards. 

 

In the following years, Simon P. Henningsen expanded his collaboration with LYFA and continued to explore theatrical light and the effects of colours as seen with the iconic Kassablanka and Nippon pendants. Today, Simon P. Henningsen’s work is characterised by a distinctive whimsical and geometric aesthetic and his use of reflections and shimmering surfaces. His unique designs are collector’s items and still admired across the world.
