About the design

The Fibonacci is an elegant large sized pendant, comprised of six bands with white inner coating – stabilized by a metal frame – with a cylinder shaped top and cone shaped bottom. The cylinder shaped top conceals the bulb mount, which is adjustable to fit various bulb sizes.

The Fibonacci was launched in 1963, designed by Danish architect Sophus Frandsen and based on the principle of the Fibonacci sequence – a mathematic sequence of numbers where a number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. The result is an almost glare-free light while providing an even, diffuse illumination of the room regardless if the pendant is suspended high or low.

Sophus Frandsen taught and researched the nature of light and its practical application for more than half a century at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and was one of the pioneers of modern research in lighting in Denmark.

Fog & Mørup marketed the pendant as “technical lighting perfection combined with architectural beauty” – and it was produced in white lacquer, solid copper and satin aluminum versions.

The light and airy design of the Fibonacci is timeless – a true beauty alight as well as idle!
