Orient was designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 and relaunched by Lightyears in 2013, in one of originally five different surfaces. In close collaboration with the Hammerborgs, the heirs to Jo Hammerborg’s designs, Lightyears is now launching a revamped version of the famous pendant, Orient Black. A matt black, aluminium pendant inspired by the original black design but with a modern twist. The matt surface makes the timeless design appear simpler and purer. The shade appears more discreet, while giving the rosewood’s dark grain a more prominent role. The fitting elegantly conceals the low-energy light source and ensures a glare-free, pleasant light.
