Pendant Task

by Gry Holmskov

In Stock


The Pendant Task by Danish designer Gry Holmskov for Danish brand Menu strikes a harmonious, breathtaking balance between function and aesthetics. Its pure, linear form catches the eye. The pendant’s light intensity and temperature can be adjusted with an app, making it easier than ever to create the best illumination for the time of day, season, or desired ambience.

Lightweight yet strong in its construction, the Pendant Task emits directed, adaptable downward wide angle light via an elegant LED bulb which can fully illuminate a dining table in a living room or a conference table in an office. It is suspended from nearly invisible fishing wire, creating the illusion of hanging freely in the air. Both in its pared-down form and soft, pleasant light, it makes a statement without ever becoming obtrusive. This balance makes the Pendant Task an essential, welcome part of the décor above dining tables, conference tables, bar areas, lobbies, lounges, counters, and any space enhanced by glare-free illumination. If the lamp is installed without using the application, it defaults to a medium temperature and intensity for everyday work and life.

Holmskov’s minimalist design works beautifully on its own and can be installed in multiples in infinite arrangements, creating continuous rows or sculptural, randomised displays of light. Clustered and installed at various heights and angles, the pendants create a graphic, dynamic setting ideal for hallways, stairwells and other spaces with high ceilings.

MENU collaborates with international designers to produce high quality design with a modern, soft minimalist look.

Gry Holmskov

Gry Holmskov has a passion for nature that she channels into her design through both material and form. Holmskov began her creative career studying cabinetmaking to gain insight into craftsmanship, materials, construction, production and tectonics. She then apprenticed with Rud Rasmussen Snedkerier, one of Denmark’s oldest cabinet making companies, making furniture designed by Danish greats such as Kaare Klint, Mogens Koch, and Mogens Lassen. After graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Architecture, Holmskov founded Studio Gry Holmskov, where she focuses on minimalistic, elegant and functional design that emphasises tactile craftsmanship and detailing. Her furniture designs are classic, simple, and easy to read and use. They are often inspired by nature – and always bear a personal touch. Today, Holmskov divides her time between teaching at the Copenhagen University College of Engineering (DTU) and expanding her architecture, cabinetmaking, illustration and design practice.
