Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Jo Hammerborg's birth, Warm Nordic have reintroduced a trio of lighting solutions, treasured by the designer. Taking pride of place in Hammerborg's own home, the Trombone Floor Lamp is the very embodiment of functionalist design, boasting a silhouette of simple geometric shapes with a practical, pivoting lamp head. Trimmed with linear cutouts that allow light to pass through and illuminate, the Trombone emits a soft, diffused light suitable for a wide array of situations.
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.
