Jo Hammerborg

Jo Hammerborg drew inspiration from the early Functionalists and had a passionate ambition to make original lamp designs accessible to everyone, thereby encouraging modern, simple interior decoration. The award-winning Danish designer will gain a special place in the heart of Warm Nordic next to two other masters in the art of lighting: the Danish designer, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen and the Swedish designer, Hans-Agne Jakobsson.



The beautiful Milieu pendant floats lightly and elegantly in a room like a celestial body in the sky - an endless source of fascination to Jo Hammerborg. Its multi-layered hemispherical shape creates a beautiful lighting effect with no glare. The original design was inspired by Jo Hammerborg’s great passion for flying and parachuting. Just like a parachute, the individual layers unfold beautifully, and the pendulum features a unique harmony and lightness - marks of a true design classic.

The Trombone series was designed in 1966. The shade of the lamp comprises a very simple metal cylinder. Its top and bottom have had narrow vertical cracks stamped out of them, allowing the light to pass through the metal and illuminate the fitting.  In combination with the white inside of the cylinder, this creates a uniquely beautiful lighting effect, and you can control the light as needed by moving the flexible lamp head up or down. The cylinder strikes an elegant balance with the two sleek metal rods connected by a single crossbar. It is this trombone-like look that gave rise to the lamp’s name. Meanwhile, the square base highlights the rigid geometric design.
