Optima pendant light pair by Hans Due for Fog & Mørup, 1970s
Hans Due's ufo-like Optima lamp series was launched by Fog & Mørup in October 1972 in white, with yellow and brown editions following a year later. The pendant lights in these early editions had diameters of 20, 50 and 60 cm respectively. These particular Optima pendants are the 35 cm diameter version in brown, which appeared towards the end of the 1970s, and are offered together as a pair (the price shown is for both lights together). They take a standard Edison screw bulb max 60w (not included) and work particularly well with a crown silver bulb (not included). Both lamps are in excellent condition with a small patch of light wear (see photos). The remains of the Fog & Mørup label is visible inside the stem of one of the pair.
