The pendant light was created by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 for one of the most important Danish lighting companies of the time, Fog & Morup. The lamp has 24 narrow, vertical slots at the top of the shade allowing light to filter through. The fitting elegantly conceals the low energy light source and ensures a soft, pleasant light without any glare.
Johannes (Jo) Hammerborg grew up on the outskirts of Randers in a regular middle-class family. He was a pronounced idea person and entrepreneur, who throughout his entire life initiated and developed the things he was passionate about. He was a key driving force for Fog & Mørup, and it was under his leadership that the company experienced their most creative and commercially successful period. With a distinct design philosophy, great insight in elimination technique and a profound understanding of form, function and aesthetics, he created over 180 different designs of lamps, several of which have received international awards.
