About the design

The Etude 2 is the smallest of two pendants designed by Michael Bang in 1978 for Holmegaard.

A beautiful blown glass pendant with an organic trumpet-like shape and a circle at the middle in either opal or aubergine colored glass. The opal version ensures an evenly distribution of light towards the sides, while the open wide bottom provides a direct flow of light downward. The aubergine version ensures that the emitted light primarily flow downwards, while the bulb itself appears as a glowing ball inside the shade. Near the bottom of the aubergine version, a broad rim is kept as clear glass, which gives the pendant a stylish touch.

The super minimalist shape combined with the extravagance of the colored blown glass makes the Etude 2 a true beauty! It blends in perfectly in almost anywhere with its non-intrusive, yet very intriguing design!

Michael Bang designed the Etude 2 and the lager version, Etude 1, in 1978 for Holmegaard and it was offered in two colors; opal and aubergine.
