Abo Randers

Abo Randers A/S was a lighting company from Aalestrup, near Randers, in Denmark. Founded in the late 1960s and mainly based on one product idea, the Ball magnet wall or table lamp (picture on this page), designed by Benny Frandsen. During the 70s the company expanded their production line with a many other lamps such as this one. Somewhere in the middle of the 1980s, ABO Randers was bought by Lyskær Belysning. For some lamps Abo Randers used joints produced by OMI, a German company.

Lyskær Belysning was incorporated into Horn Belysning A/S of Aalstrup in 1991, which was itself taken over in 2005 by Nordlux of Ålborg and at a large extent dismantled

IKEA

The in origin Swedish company IKEA sold several lamps made by Abo Randers. You can find a few of them here on Vintageinfo.
