About the design
The Columbus wall lamp, designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1977, consists of a half circle plastic semi-translucent plastic shade with a brass cylinder for base and a brass arm centered on a round brass wall mounting. The shade has a white inner coating and features ‘peepholes’ on the top for upwards emission of any heat buildup and also creating a patterned luminance upwards and onto the wall. Shape of the shade directs the light downwards, projecting a crescent of light on the wall.
Originally produced in three variations – a green, brown or white plastic shade, all with white inner coatings. The green and brown versions came with brass cylinder, arm and wall mounting whereas the white version had a white lacquered cylinder, arm and wall mounting.
