White and yellow folding pendant lamp made of PVC designed by Lars Schiøler for the Danish company Hoyrup in the 1970s. These lamps were sold as self-assemble kits. They came without a socket, bulb and without a cord. We have seen this lamp being called Ballet but so far there is no hard evidence for this.
Hoyrup Lighting was founded by Hans Hoyrup in the late 1960s. They created a wide range of stylish modern Danish lights, that were easily-assembled and therefore easy to ship around the world.
