About the design
The Life is a beautiful medium sized pendant light with two center cylinder shaped shades and a pyramid shaped shade, all with brass lacquered outer and white inner. The warm shiny brass surface radiates when hung, capturing the reflection from the surroundings. When lit, the two center shades guides the light perfectly upwards and downwards, while the pyramid shaped shade ensures a pleasant room illumination.
The LIFE pendant was designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1975 and by Fog & Mørup originally advertised as a “beautiful and sturdy lamp in a modern design emitting a soft and cozy light with a maritime touch”. The pendant was produced in aluminum with brass lacquered outer and white inner. The pyramid shaped shade was also available in dark green and brown.
