About the design

Pompei is designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 and produced by Fog & Mørup in collaboration with Holmegaard Glassworks.

It is an elegantly shaped mouth glass blown pendant – double layered glass with colored outer and white inner. The double layered glass ensures a completely glare free light, while the white inner ensures that the emitted light is evenly distributed along the sides and gently guide through the narrow open bottom. The colored outer emits a warm glow.

The Pompei is one of Jo Hammerborg’s first designs, and was released in 1963 in four colors; opal, gray, olive and this beautiful orange version. Each Pompei is comprised of mouth blown glass from Holmegaard Glassworks, and the combination of the mouth blown glass and the very attractive shape demonstrates to perfection how glass and lighting can be almost magical together.

The glass shade lies on a metal frame, which holds the bulb socket, thus placing the bulb in middle of the glass shade.
