Aluminium and black powder coated aluminium. Excellent condition, like new.

  

This 1967 pendant is one of Hammerborg's most famous designs and consists of three cylinders, a structure Hammerborg loved exploring with. The black cylinder is painted pink on the inside, which creates a warm and pleasant glow on the lamp and the ceiling. The Zenith is slim and tall compared to the Tunika (another variation on the three cylinder concept that won the iF Product Design Award).

 

Read more about Jo Hammerborg

Johannes Hammerborg (1920 - 1982) 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, Hammerborg’s 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 left the company in 1980 to set up his own lighting design business, two years before he died in a skydiving accident. After he left, Fog & Mørup experienced a rapid decline.
