About the design
The Lakaj pendant by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup in 1977.
It is a bell-shaped light with a two-toned outer, white inner and a plastic diffuser plate covering the bottom. The middle shade is secured to the cylindrical top and the inner ring by brackets, leaving a narrow distance between parts to ensure that light can escape through. The two tones (the middle shade is one to two tones darker than the cylindrical top and inner ring) makes a subtle but strong statement and is sure to attract attention and comments.
When lit, most of the light is guided downwards by the middle shade, while the inner ring and the diffuser plates protects from glare. The cylindrical top is open towards the ceiling and provides some upward directed light.
Lakaj is part of Jo Hammerborg’s late 1970s series of glossy and colorful pendants and were produced in 5 different vibrant two-toned colors; brown/light brown, light gray/white, red/light red, dark brown/gray and green/light green.
Advertised as emitting “…a special and elegant light effect, matching most surroundings”.
