Orient pendant lamp copper

By Fritz Hansen Lighting


  • Description

    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 for one of the most important Danish lighting companies of the time, Fog & Mørup. Jo Hammerborg was recognised for his innovative, modernist design, and the Orient pendant was one of his many commercial successes in the 1960s and 1970s. Exactly 50 years on from the lamp's creation, Lightyears has chosen to relaunch Orient in close cooperation with the Hammerborg family, the heirs of Jo Hammerborg's design.

    The classic pendant light has been resurrected in a form, which is completely true to the original and available in two pendant sizes, Ø225 and Ø340mm. The organic mode of expression beautifully connects the deep, vibrant copper glow and the rosewood top. The rosewood's dark grain creates a natural connection with the tightly woven black textile cord. 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.

  • Designer
    Jo Hammerborg
    Johannes (Jo) Hammerborg grew up on the outskirts of Randers in a regular middle-class family. He trained as a silversmith, participated in Denmark's resistance and struggle for freedom in 1940-45 as a saboteur, studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and worked as a silversmith at Georg Jensen. In 1957, he was hired as chief designer at the lamp manufacturer Fog & Mørup, where he worked until 1980.

    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 ceased production of his designs.
