A copper Jo Hammerborg classic Saturn pendant for Fog & Mørup Denmark, 1960s
A copper Jo Hammerborg classic Saturn pendant for Fog & Mørup Denmark.
The classic Saturn was one of Jo Hammerborg's first designs when he took over as director of design at Fog & Mørup at the end of the 1950s and began the process of transforming the company's product lines, bringing in a new modernist aesthetic in line with his previous work as a silversmith at Georg Jensen.
The Saturn design concept was a structure of two concentric cylindrical bands, and Hammerborg explored the art of balance and proportion through this form during his two decades of design work at Fog & Morup in many variations of height and width, to the extent that it became one of his signature themes and his most easily recognised and most widely imitated design concept.
