Hammerborg designed this modern looking floor lamp in the early 60s. Like the Zenith, the Studio gets its greatest merit of the cylinder structure. Not only is light thrown on the subject in a focused beam, but also through the opening between the cylinders, which exposes the lamp itself. This quality makes it an excellent companion in a cozy reading corner. The studio is modest yet strikingly beautiful. Its minimal look and efficiency will never go out of style.

 

read more about Jo Hammerborg

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.
