Detailed information

EQUATOR – bright red pendant light, designed in 1968 by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup – and re-introduced in bright new colors with the Rainbow Line in 1969 – this bright red EQUATOR is from the Rainbow Line.

A large space age pendant, comprised of two inner rings surrounded by larger outer ring and a cylinder shaped top, all with bright red outer coating. The rings have white inner coating, except for the bottom ring, which like most of Hammerborg’s lights features a dark gray inside, to acts a diffuser, to counter direct light throw back.

When lit, the light is emitted through the narrow space between rings, and creates a soft illumination, while still giving a direct flow of light through the open bottom. The outer ring turns dark, while the two inner rings and the cylinder top turns almost light orange, as they are lit up by the reflection from the outer ring.
It would fit perfect for a medium dining table, adding a burst of color to the setting, but it would also look amazing hanging in a kitchen, giving a touch of Scandinavian Modern style.

The EQUATOR was originally introduced in 1968 in three different colors; light grey, pale blue and orange (almost red), and the following year it was re-launched in new vibrant colors, together with two existing designs and one new design, in the Rainbow Line. The new color theme was bright red, sunny yellow, bright blue and white.

All original, but rewired with 2 m (6′ 6.7″) high end quality, black fabric cord – for safety and beauty. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
