The Hercules was designed in the mid 1970s by Fog & Mørup’s head of design Jo Hammerborg and is a substantial and solidly made lamp offering good room illumination as well as an anti-dazzle work light. This light was made in a variation of colors this being the all golden version.It comes with its original spiral rise and fall suspension incorporating a polished solid brass clevis.
Good condition with a few marks and scratches as seen in the photos. Standard E27 light bulb socket.
Johannes (Jo) Hammerborg grew up right outside of Randers, in a regular middle-class family. He trained as a silversmith, participated in Denmark’s resistance and struggle for freedom in 1940-45 as a saboteur, studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and worked as a silversmith at Georg Jensen. In 1957, he was hired as a chief designer at the lamp manufacturer Fog & Mørup, where he worked until 1980.
And now, decades later, his coveted lamps are in high demand, and they are being sold in antique shops.
