Arabia Finel Kehrä set by Kaj Franck and Raija Uosikkinen for Fog & Mørup

Arabia Finel Kehrä set by Kaj Franck and Raija Uosikkinen for Fog & Mørup

Arabia Finel Kehrä set by Kaj Franck and Raija Uosikkinen for Fog & Mørup

In the mid-1970s Danish lighting company Fog & Mørup collaborated with Arabia of Finland to produce a range of high-quality enamelled steel kitchenware and pendant lights adapted from Arabia's Finel line. The lights were produced in two sizes, with form by Kaj Franck and decoration by Arabia's in-house artists – this particular pattern, entitled Kehrä, created by Raija Uosikkinen. 

This red Kehrä set comprises two lamps in the smaller 21 cm diameter size and one in the larger 30 cm diameter size, and also includes a matching coffee pot. The lamps are in excellent condition – one of the smaller pair has a 5mm chip to the outer rim (see photos) and the larger lamp has some very slight, almost imperceptible, scuffing to the upper surface. The coffee pot is in very good condition externally with a chip to the lid rim (see photos) but has extensive enamel loss to the interior base and interior lid, so is better suited to decorative rather than functional use.

All three lamps come with their original Fog & Mørup bulb-holder – an intrinsic part of the lamps' design which is often missing due to the fact that it is not permanently fixed to the shade but instead has a narrow cylindrical protuberance at the top which slots precisely into a small hole at the top of the shade to hold it securely in position. These bulb-holders were unique to Fog & Mørup, designed by Jo Hammerborg and used in several different product lines to minimise the external profile of the electrical fittings in keeping with the company's signature style of pared-down modernism.
