Vega hourglass pendant light by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup, 1960s

Jo Hammerborg's Vega pendant lamp, created for Fog & Mørup in 1968, evidences more clearly than any of Hammerborg's other designs the eight years from 1949 to 1957 he spent as a silversmith at Georg Jensen. The fluid organic lines of objects and jewellery he worked on there by designers including Henning Koppel are a clear influence on the Vega's elegant hourglass form, as are the contrasting textures of its spun aluminium surface and its shiny chrome waist, while the lamp's sparse beauty and functional effectiveness place it firmly in Hammerborg's own arena of international modernism.
Measuring 38cm in diameter and 55cm in height, the Vega is a spectacular statement piece harmonious with both modernist and space-age interiors. It is simultaneously an uplighter and a downlighter, and takes two standard Edison screw E27 bulbs max 100w each. This example is in very good condition with moderate wear (see photos) and retains its original but somewhat faded Fog & Mørup label.
