Lento table lamp is designed by Jo Hammerborg for Fog & Mørup in 1967 - this version is from the White Line, produced in 1969 - rare white desk light in very good, near excellent, vintage condition.
A classic Mid-Century table lamp with adjustable white lacquered metal shade with the signature dark gray band inside near the bottom, a white lacquered metal arm and a heavy round white lacquered metal base.
When lit, the upper part of the shade gets illuminated from underneath through the narrow space between the upper and lower part of the shade. The shade is adjustable both upwards and downwards (for widening and narrowing the illumination), and rotates almost 90 degrees to the sides, enabling you to direct the light to where it is needed - thus making the applications of this classic beauty numerous.Originally produced in three variations - copper, brass and aluminum. Two years later Jo Hammerborg and Fog & Mørup introduced The White Line, featuring the Lento, all in white. The White Line was an opposition to the slightly earlier Rainbow Line by Fog & Mørup and Young Line by Louis Poulsen (which both featured existing designs in new bright colours).
The Lento is the original white, almost light gray version from the White Line and it is in very good, near excellent, vintage condition with minimal signs of usage and age - the base has very few markings and the shade have one very tiny superficial scratch - nothing you would not except on a +40 years old table lamp. Label partly intact.
