Orient™

Designed by Jo Hammerborg, 1963

The Orient™ pendant is a flawless light design with good luminous efficacy and made from the finest quality materials. The pendant light was created by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 and relaunched by Lightyears in 2013 in close cooperation with the Hammerborg family, the heirs of Jo Hammerborg's design. The organic mode of expression beautifully connects the deep, vibrant copper glow and the rosewood top. The lamp has 21/24 narrow, vertical slots at the top of the genuine copper shade allowing light to filter through. The fitting elegantly conceals the low energy light source and ensures a soft, pleasant light without any glare.

Jo Hammerborg

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. In 1980, Fog & Mørup underwent a series of mergers, and in the late 90s they ceased production of his designs.

And now decades later, when his coveted lamps are in high demand, it is once again possible to buy a newly manufactured Jo Hammerborg lamp. Lightyears has, in cooperation with the Hammerborg family, decided to relaunch the Orient pendants.

Jo Hammerborg's innovative contribution to Danish lamp design sits naturally in the 21st century, and we at Lightyears can only be proud of continuing his beautiful design legacy.
