About the design
The Aktiv is designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1977 for Fog & Mørup. It is a beautiful classic design with especially good distribution of light. It was originally produced in 5 different colors (black, red, yellow, brown and green)
An advertisement for the lamp dating from 1977 ran as follows: “With the 5 different colors there is always a possibility of matching the light fitting with the rest of the interior”.
