COCKTAIL (PAIR), PENDANT LIGHTING, HENNING REHHOF, FOG & MORUP, 1971

Description

COCKTAIL (pair), pendant lighting by Henning Rehhof in 1971 and produced by Fog & Mørup - Rare and very attractive pair of red and white ceiling lights in good vintage condition.

The spectacular COCKTAIL is made up of 12 detachable aluminum strips in two different lengths. Painted red on one side and white on the other, thus giving you the possibility to easily change the color combination to suit your needs.
It was only produced for a short period in the early 1970s. The story behind this beautiful design is that the designer, Henning Rehhof was as usual a little behind with his Christmas shopping, so he made 5-6 lamps in pine strips as presents. Later he developed the pine strip principle and the result was the COCKTAIL pendant - a pendant with painted aluminum strip that can be "mixed" in a wide range of color combinations - just like cocktails, hence the name.
If all the strips are placed with the red side outwards and the white side inwards, the ambiance is white - if you on the other hand place all strips with the white side outwards and the red side inward, the ambiance is red.

Other than the ambiance, you are able to adjust the illumination depending on which strips are placed closest to the center - when all the short strips are placed closest to the center, the illumination are wider than if all the long strips are placed closest to the center.
An advertisement for the lamp dating from May in 1971 ran as follows: “Cocktail is the name of a new type of lamp with a wide variety of combinations. Just by moving the 12 loose red-white aluminum-strips, you are creating new, exciting color effects and thus different moods in the living room. Do you prefer a classic white lamp or a hot-red-glowing coziness lamp?
