About the design
Orient major is a medium sized teardrop-shaped pendant with white inner coating for optimal reflection of the light. The top is made of teak and the bottom holds a diffuser to soften the light emission.
The Orient was produced by Fog & Morup in two sizes – Orient minor with a diameter of 8.9″ (22,5 cm) and Orient major with a diameter of 15″ (38 cm). The Orient major were offered in four versions differentiated by the lacquered finishes, which were – copper, aluminum, brown anodized and slate anodized, all with teak at the top and plastic diffuser at the bottom.
Jo Hammerborg joined Fog & Mørup in 1957 and immediately began transforming the company’s product range. A catalogue from 1963 included 24 designs by Hammerborg, many of them are highly sought after today. Amongst them is the Orient!
