Jo Hammerborg (born in Denmark,1920-1982) trained as a silversmith in 1942, and in 1944, he entered the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts where his paintings where exhibited every year from 1944 to 1947. Out of school he worked 8 years as a silversmith for the prestigious Georg Jensen company before becoming head of design at the Danish lighting company Fog & Mørup. His unique style, unified branded product lines and extreme attention to production detail propelled Fog & Mørup to the forefront of Danish lighting from the 60s to the 80s. The Fog & Mørup company pretty much ceased after the departure of Jo Hammerborg whose passion for airborn sports took him away too soon in a sky diving accident.

Fog & Mørup was started in Denmark in 1904 by Ansgar Fog and E Mørup. They started to specialize in lighting in 1906 and opened their first lighting factory in 1915. After multiple factory expansions owing to 20 years of continuous success, Fog & Mørup became a principal actor in Danish modern lighting, locally and internationally, with the arrival of Jo Hammerborg as the design director. The modernism of the new Fog & Mørup attracted the best designers like Sophus Frandsen, Claus Bonderup and Torsten Thorup, Jørgen Bo, E Balslev, Karen and Ebbe Clemmensen, Sidse Werner, Hans Due and Peter Avondoglio.

The most Iconic Fog & Mørup piece is the Semi, now a classic of mid-century modernism and Danish Modern design. Fog & Mørup also produced lamps for Holmegaard, Royal Copenhagen and Kaj Franck’s Arabia. In the late 70s, Fog & Mørup merged with Lyfa, another cult Danish modern lighting company.
