About the design
ABO STAT is a table lamp, based on the ABO MAG by Hans Jørgen Berthel for ABO Randers in the 1960s. This is the smallest of two versions.
In this version, the ball is placed on a steel stand instead of a magnet base. It is centered on the top part of the chrome-plated steel stand, held into place by two black plastic ‘balls’ – allowing up and down movement to change the direction of the light to suit your specific needs.
The non-intrusive yet intriguingly simple design makes this light great for a working space where you need to adjust the direction of the light, or perhaps on a shelf in the living room. Sure, to make you smile too!
The ABO MAG is later reproduced by several Danish and Italian producers with subtle changes to the design, among them Frandsen Lighting and E.S.Horn. As wall lights, the ABO MAG was available in a variety of different colors and hung in many homes in Denmark throughout the 60, 70’s and 80s. ABO Randers sold over 2 million ABO MAG wall lamps in Denmark alone (with a population of 5 million at that time) – that is true democratic design!
