About the design
Vega is a large aluminum pendant by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup in 1968.
It is a tall stylish pendant made in aluminum with an hour-glass shape and a shiny chromed plated piece around its pinched waistline. Each of the two-opposite dome-like aluminum pieces hides a bulb socket inside and is covered with off-white inner coating to ensure a softer reflection of the light. The chromed plated middle piece conceals the connection between the two domes as well as secures the two bulb sockets.
The double bulb socket provides both upward and downward directed light, and a discreet on/off string switch inside the lower dome enables you to choose between having the upper dome lit or idle – a genius feature!
A Scandinavian Modern pendant that would fit with almost any interior, as shape and material come together perfectly, making it a TRUE timeless design piece. The clear flow of light downwards is perfect for low hanging, like over a dining table or a sitting area, but it would also look gorgeous hanging a bit higher, like over a kitchen counter or island.
