Hammerborg, Jo

(1920 - 1982)

Jo Hammerborg was a Danish designer. He was the head of design at the Fog & Mørup company from 1957 until 1980. He created over 60 lamps and brought a new modernist aesthetic to the company, but also collaborated with other designers to adapt their designs to meet F&M’s stringent production requirements. Meanwhile, he worked closely with the Holmegaard glass company and the Royal Copenhagen porcelain factory. Hammerborg’s lighting designs won many prizes, amongst them a CICi first prize in 1965 for the Nova and four iF Product Design Awards in 1969 for the Classic, Tunika, Saturn and Diskos.
