Concept

The Orient pendant is a flawless light design with good luminous efficacy and made from the finest quality materials. The pendant light was created by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 for one of the most important Danish lighting companies of the time, Fog & Mørup. Jo Hammerborg was recognised for his innovative, modernist design, and the Orient pendant was one of his many commercial successes in the 1960s and 1970s. Exactly 50 years on from the lamp's creation, Lightyears has chosen to relaunch Orient in close cooperation with the Hammerborg family, the heirs of Jo Hammerborg's design.

The classic pendant light has been resurrected in a form, which is completely true to the original and available in two pendant sizes, Ø225 and Ø340mm. The organic mode of expression beautifully connects the deep, vibrant copper glow and the rosewood top. The rosewood's dark grain creates a natural connection with the tightly woven black textile cord. The lamp has 21/24 narrow, vertical slots at the top of the genuine copper shade allowing light to filter through. The fitting elegantly conceals the low energy light source and ensures a soft, pleasant light without any glare.

The warm and exclusive impression created by Orient is a gratifying element in the interior decoration of venues such as cafe environments, restaurants, hotels, shops and private homes.
