Detailed information

ABO MAG – chrome-plated pair of super rare and retro 1960s magnetic ball wall lamps produced by ABO Randers – in very good vintage condition.

Originally designed by Hans Jørgen Berthel (the owner of ABO Randers) in the early 1960s, and later reproduced by several Danish and Italian producers with subtle changes to the design, among them Frandsen Lighting and E.S.Horn. The ABO MAG was available in a variety of different colors and hung in many homes in Denmark throughout the 70’s and 80s.

The genius of this light is the magnet which holds the lamp in place and allows you to easily adjust and point the light where you need it – for excellent reading light – over the bed or your favorite chair. It could also be used as a table lamp, as you will find described elsewhere, but the original idea, is to mount it on the wall using the screw hole in the middle of the magnet.

This pair of chrome-plated ABO MAG’s is slightly larger than the colored version and is in RARE very good vintage condition with very few signs of normal usage (markings from the magnetic function). Labels intact. Please see the photos!

All original, but rewired with 2,4 m (7′ 10.5″) white plastic cord and fitted with the original on/off switch placed at convenient height at the cord and Euro style two-pin plug – which is easily changed to your specific plug. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
