Zero: probably Fog & Mørup's largest and rarest light

Posted by modblog 06/07/2010 0 Comment(s) Fog & Mørup,Jo Hammerborg,

The multi-cylindrical Zero (pictured below), a classic Jo Hammerborg creation dating from late 1970 or early 1971, is a strong candidate for the titles of both rarest and largest Fog & Mørup light of the 1960s and 1970s – the "Hammerborg period" that was F&M’s heyday.

The huge scale of this scarce and elusive light doesn’t really come over in the original F&M catalogue images (see example below), or in a consideration of the lamp’s given dimensions of 40.5cm diameter and 30cm height.

Indeed, it’s only when the Zero is directly compared side by side with other lights of more standard proportions that its impressive size can be fully appreciated. We have placed it here next to Simon Henningsen’s Lyfa Kassablanka to illustrate the point.
