The Trombone series was designed in 1966 by the renowned Danish lighting designer Jo Hammerborg, who was behind a large number of original lamps that have gained classic status over time - several based on cylindrical shades. Precisely Trombone presented a number of technical challenges during the design process and therefore took on a special meaning for Jo Hammerborg when his vision succeeded - and the lamp is among the designs that had a place of honor in his own home throughout his life.
Simple and elegant table lamp in a tight geometric design. The well-composed Trombone table lamp will stand out as a beautiful feature in many of the home's rooms. The table lamp's shade consists of a very simple metal cylinder, which has a circle of narrow vertical slits punched out both above and below, which allow the light to pass through the metal and illuminate the fixture. In combination with the white inside of the cylinder, it creates a uniquely beautiful light effect, and the light can be controlled as needed by moving the flexible lamp head up or down. The cylinder balances elegantly between two slender metal rods connected by a single crossbar – a design expression that brings to mind a draft trumpet and inspired the lamp's name – while the square base emphasizes the tight geometric design. In addition to the table lamp, the Trombone series also includes a pendant and floor lamp, which are available in either brushed brass or brushed aluminum and testify to Jo Hammerborg's love of metals.
Danske Jo Hammerborg (1920-1982) var dybt fascineret af himmelrummet, og hans passion for flyvning og faldskærmsudspring var en væsentlig inspirationskilde til hans innovative såvel som folkekære lampedesign, der har modtaget flere internationale priser.
