Green blown glass pendant lights by Jacob E. Bang in 1964 for Fog & Morup and Holmegaard Glassworks – in excellent vintage condition
KRETA (pair) – green blown glass pendant lights designed by Jacob E. Bang in 1964 and produced by Fog & Mørup in collaboration with Holmegaard Glassworks – gorgeous glass ceiling lights in excellent vintage condition.
A pair of blown glass pendants – double layered glass with green outer and white inner – shaped with a wide body and a elongated narrowing neck. The double layered glass provides a completely glare free light, while the white inner ensures that the emitted light is evenly distributed along the sides and gently guided through the narrow open bottom. The green outer turns light green, almost neon green, and emits a soft warm glow with a green ambiance.
The KRETA is designed by Jacob E. Bang (in close collaboration with Jo Hammerborg to ensure that the design would fit with the existing Fog & Mørup product line), and was released in 1964 in five colors; light gray, olive, yellow, opal and this beautiful purple version. Each KRETA is comprised of mouth blown glass from Holmegaard Glassworks, and the combination of the mouth blown glass and the very attractive shape demonstrates to perfection how glass and lighting can be almost magical together.
Two timeless pieces that creates a lovely warm atmosphere – in the living room hanging beside each other over a large dining table or in the kitchen hanging over a kitchen counter – anywhere you need a warm and cozy touch.
Original, but rewired with 2 m (6′ 6.7″) high end white fabric cord – for safety and beauty, and fitted with unoriginal suspension for the bulb socket (no influence when hung). Tested and fully functional.
Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.

Minimal signs of usage and age. There is a slight difference in the green nuance, but since these lights are made in blown glass, a slight nuance in the green tone would occur. No chips or cracks in either of the glass shades. Please see the photos!
