GM Pendant Lighting
Grethe Meyer is one of Denmark’s most distinguished representatives of the Danish industrial design, pendant lighting. She was a designer and an architect and won numerous awards for her work.
Her fine sense of the simple and sleek idiom has made many of her designs into classics, and thanks to her ability to also design in a timeless manner – we now have the pleasure, and honour, of putting the Grethe Meyer Pendant into production for the first time.
Her original sketches of the lamp dates back to May 1984 and now, 30 years later, it’s ready to decorate homes and kitchen all over the world.
GM Pendant is available in two different sizes for different uses. Hang one large lamp over the dining table, 2 small ones in the kitchen or several lamps together as a graphic installation.

One of Denmark’s most distinguished representatives of Danish industrial design. Architect, designer and pioneer.
Grethe Meyer (1918 – 2008) was an architect and designer and one of the most recognized representatives of the Danish industrial design. A genre which she won numerous awards within.
Grethe Meyer made a great mark on Danish Design history with her aesthetic, simple, timeless and functional designs. Her work always contained quality, personality and respect for the user. She wanted things to be simple and somewhat anonymous, but still be a daily joy for those who used it. Fortunately her work has been a great joy to audiences all around the world and today many of her designs have become classics.
Grethe Meyer belongs to the classical architects and designers such as Børge Mogensen, with whom she designed “Boligens Byggeskabe”. She graduated from the Danish School of Architecture in 1947 and started working with research and analysis of people’s space-related challenges and how that effected their behaviour – and choice of furniture. She also worked at the Danish Building Research Institute and in 1960 she established an independent studio.
Design wise Grethe Meyer is probably best known for her faience service, ‘Blåkant’, the porcelain service series, ‘Hvidpot’ and the stoneware series ‘Firepot’, which for many years was a great success for Royal Copenhagen, as well as for her beautiful steel cutlery, ‘Copenhagen’ for Georg Jensen.
