About the design
The Formel 3 is made up of a painted metal shade ending in an elongated top which conceals the bulb. The inside is white for optimal reflection while the outside is painted in bright colors, such as; black, yellow, brown, red and white. The light was also produced in polished aluminum.
The Formel 3 is the largest in the lighting series, Formel by Hans Due. The Formel series was originally launched in 1974 and produced in 3 sizes; Formel 1 (10.2″/26 cm in width), Formel 2 (15.9″/40,5 cm in width) and this one, Formel 3 with a diameter of 19.7″/50 cm. The advert from 1974 stated that “their beautiful, simple design makes the applications endless, especially where a good working light is needed”.
Fog & Mørup received the International Forum (iF) Product Design Awards in the 1974 for this light series.
