About the design
This Metal pendant is produced by Fog & Morup in the 1960s.
A cylindrical metal pendant with lacquered colored outer and white inner. Comprised of five rings – two slightly narrower than the other three – arranged in tiers and held in placed by concealed brackets. The bulb socket is suspended from a metal plate near the top to ensure that the bulb is placed in center of the lamp.
The magic happens when lit, as the two inner rings are emitted by the reflection of the three outer rings, creating a beautiful effect, while softening and diffuse the ambiance. The open bottom and top provides a good flow of direct light upwards and downwards.
It features a label or sticker, located near the bulb socket underneath the metal plate, revealing a Fog & Mørup logo – but we are not familiar with the design name. Our research so far have only revealed clearly false information about this pendant. It is often mistaken for an Eiffel pendant, designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 – just in orange – but this is NOT an Eiffel pendant. The Eiffel was only produced in aluminum and copper finishes with four black external rings. This pendant is slightly larger, finished in full colored lacquered outer and features three same colored external rings.
However since we have not been able to identify the design name, but do have an intact Fog & Mørup sticker inside, we can only presume that, this is by the hand of the chief designer Jo Hammerborg.
We have seen this model in bright orange and olive-green.
