Jo Hammerborg's Zenith pendant

Posted by modblog 21/06/2010 0 Comment(s) Fog & Mørup,Jo Hammerborg,

One of the most frequently misattributed Fog & Mørup lights is the Zenith, pictured below, whose designer is often given as Simon P Henningsen, son of that most celebrated of all Danish lighting designers, Poul Henningsen (aka PH). In fact the Zenith is a highly characteristic 1960s Jo Hammerborg creation, one of an extended series in which he explored the same basic structure in many varying proportions of height and width. None of Simon Henningsen’s light designs were produced by Fog & Mørup – all four of his creations in circulation today (the Tivoli Havelampe, the Divan 2, the Kassablanka and the Nippon) were made by Lyfa.
