First issued by Fog & Mørup in 1963, Jo Hammerborg's Nova was produced in three versions – copper, brass and solid satin aluminium. These two (offered for sale individually) are the aluminium version and both are in very good condition with minor blemishes (see photos). The Nova has a diameter of 40cm (15.75 inches) and a height of 18cm (7 inches), and takes a standard-sized screw bulb max 100w (not supplied). It works particularly well hung low, for example over a dining table, to provide a soft and glare-free downlight in the classic Danish hygge style.
