About the design

The Lento – a table lamp designed by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup in 1967.

A classic Mid Century table lamp with adjustable shade with white inner coating, lacquered metal arm and a round solid base.

When lit, the upper brass part of the shade gets illuminated from underneath through the narrow space between the upper and lower part of the shade. The shade is adjustable both upwards and downwards (for widening and narrowing the illumination), and rotates almost 90 degrees to the sides, enabling you to direct the light to where it is needed – thus making the applications of this classic beauty numerous.

Originally produced in three variations – copper, brass and aluminum. Two years later Jo Hammerborg and Fog & Mørup introduced The White Line, featuring the LENTO, all in white. The White Line was an opposition to the slightly earlier Rainbow Line by Fog & Mørup and Young Line by Louis Poulsen (which both featured existing designs in new bright colors).
