Hoyrup Light was founded by Preben Johan Høyrup in the late 1940s. In 1968, the company became the limited company P.J. Høyrup A/S with Preben as boss. The designer Lars Ejler Schiøler became a co-owner and in 1978. Up through the 1950s, beautiful architectural lamps were produced in antistatic plastic and vacuum formed. A patent was taken for the special cold-shaped plastic dome lamps, the so-called Pearl lamps, which were made in several sizes and colors
