Like the Zenith, the Studio and the Tunika, the Saturn pendant is part of a series of cylindrical lamps which are very recognizable Hammerborg designs. It earned Hammerborg the iF Product Design Award in 1969. In the original Fog & Mørup catalogue from 1963 the Saturn was described as “a decorative pendant forming an excellent anti-dazzle all-round fixture, with a fine lighting effect”.

Johannes Hammerborg was a Danish designer, who started his professional career as a silversmith before he became head of design at Fog & Mørup from 1957-1980. Under his wings, the Danish lighting design company knew its most successful period in 80 years of existence. Hammerborg had a clear artistical and commercial vision that went into the smallest details; labelling, packaging, advertising and showroom display. In his collaboration with Sidse Werner and Leif Alring for creating the parachute-like Formland lamp series, Hammerborgs passion for skydiving plays an important role. He even piloted the plane that was used in the promotional photoshoot. Hammerborg himself created over 60 lamps. A lot of those designs; great examples of his formal and aesthetic insights, were awarded with prizes. The Classic, Tunika, Saturn and Diskos pendants all won an iF Product Design Award. Jo Hammerborg retired in 1980, two years before he died in a skydiving accident. After he left, Fog & Mørup experienced a rapid decline.
