Danish lighting designer Jo Hammerborg studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and worked as a silversmith at Georg Jensen. In 1957, he was hired as chief designer at the lamp manufacturer Fog & Mørup. With a distinct design philosophy, great insight in elimination technique and a profound understanding of form, function and aesthetics, he created over 180 different designs of lamps, several of which have received international awards. Decades later his coveted lamps are still in high demand. So, in cooperation with the Hammerborg family, Danish company Lightyears have relaunched the Orient Pendant Light.
