About the design

Trombone II – a floor lamps by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup, 1966.

A sleek shaped floor lamp with a square brown lacquered metal base, from where two brass lacquered stems emerge, connected by a “handle” (adjustable in height), giving the light the trombone look, which the name references. Suspended at the top, between the two stems is an adjustable brass lacquered shade. The cylinder shaped shade features Jo Hammerborg’s signature peepholes towards the top and bottom, and the white inner coating with a gray bottom band, seen in most of his lighting designs. The top of the shade features a white on/off switch.

The peepholes spread a subtle light over to the surrounding space, while the cylinder shape directs the light in a concentrated beam of light – the shade is adjustable upwards and downwards (about 45 degrees one way and 180 degrees the other way) to suit your needs.

In 1966 Jo Hammerborg designed the Trombone lights for Fog & Mørup – a table lamp, Trombone I and a reading lamp (floor lamp), Trombone II. Both versions were produced in aluminum lacquer or brass lacquer.
