MODERNIST TROMBONE FLOORLAMP
BY JO HAMMERBORG
Designer Jo Hammerborg (1920-1982) 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. In 1980, Fog & Mørup underwent a series of mergers, and in the late 90s they ceased production of his designs.
With a distinct design philosophy, great insight in elimination technique and a profound understanding of form, function and aesthetics, Hammerborg created over 180 different designs of lamps, several of which have received international awards.
This Trombone lamp is a fine example of his talent.
