About the design
The Eiffel is designed by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup in 1963. It is a medium sized pendant comprised by seven aluminum rings – held together by concealed brackets – and positioned by alternating wider above narrower rings, so the light can escape in a most dramatic manner. The four outer rings are lacquered dark gray, almost black, while the three inner rings have either copper or aluminum lacquer.
The inner rings is emitted by the reflected light of the outer rings, creating the impression that the outer rings floats around a cylinder of aluminum – a truly beautiful light when lit.
Emphasize a mid century style in the living room or in the kitchen with this timeless beauty!
Jo Hammerborg joined Fog & Mørup in 1957 and immediately began transforming the company’s product range. In a catalogue from 1963 included 24 designs by Hammerborg. Among them is the Eiffel.
