Michael Bang (1942-2013) was the son of Jacob E. Bang, Holmegaard’s first designer. In the 1960s and 1970s, Michael Bang was a designer at the Odense Glass Factory, but moved with his family to Holmegaard in the 1980s when he joined the Holmegaard Glass Factory. Here he managed the design of the hand-blown lamps in opal-white glass in which the glass factory specialised.

Nordisk Solar Compagni A/S was founded in 1919 by Jacob L. Jørgensen and Herluf Sørensen with a focus on electricity meters. They utilized their plastic expertise from the radio production, and over the next two decades created some iconic light designs. They were known for high quality design and won a number of international design awards. In 1975 the company created an industry department and began expanding into Finland, Sweden and Germany, the coming years.
