About the design
The Nova is designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 and produced by Fog & Mørup.
A round medium sized (15.8″ / 40 cm wide) pendant, comprised of four shade encompassing each other. The largest shade features a white inner coating towards the top, while the rest are coated in either yellow, orange or white, for warm reflection of the light. The small shade, that conceals the bulb mount features a dark gray coating, to soften the light downwards.
When lit, this beauty provides a soft and glare-free downwards, making it perfect for low hanging and the shiny surface captures and reflects the contours of the surrounding space – a true beauty.
One of several themes that ran through Jo Hammerborg’s work at Fog & Mørup during the 1960s was that the lights were often produced in three different metals – copper, brass and aluminum. Hammerborg’s classic early 1960s NOVA pendant light is among these triads.
