Fritz Hansen | ORIENT™ P1

Color: Aluminum / Oak

About the ORIENT

The Orient™ pendant is an ode to fine craftsmanship. Designed originally in 1963 by Jo Hammerborg, the pendant was relaunched in updated materials in 2013. The curvy organic shape with fine detailing elegantly conceals the light source and ensures a pleasant soft light without glare. Available in three expressions, the dark rosewood with matt black aluminium is a modern interpretation of the original black version. The lighter option in Scandinavian oak and silver-coloured aluminium lends a Nordic touch to the pendant. While the Copper version with a rosewood top radiates a rich warmth. The smallest Orient pendant (Ø 225mm) can be hung alone, in a pair above counters or tables, or throughout a hospitality project, for example.

About the designer

Jo Hammerborg grew up on the outskirts 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 chief designer at the lamp manufacturer Fog & Mørup, where he worked until 1980.
