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 floor lamp in a tight geometric design. By virtue of its strict design, the Trombone floor lamp gives character to its surroundings. The floor lamp's shade consists of a 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 floor lamp, the Trombone series also includes a table lamp and pendant, which are available in either brushed brass or brushed aluminum and bear witness to Jo Hammerborg's love for 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.
