Founder of the Frandsen Group
The Ball light would never have been made and sold to millions without a determined young electrician named Benny Frandsen, who in the 1960s made prototypes for prototypes in the basement of his house in the Danish town of Skanderborg.
The round lamp was introduced as a wall and pendant lamp and especially the wall lamp with a strong magnet was very popular. When Benny Frandsen won the design awards, the ball lamp became an integral part of practically every house in Denmark and today most Danes have a special relationship with the small round lamp.
Benny Frandsen is the founder of Frandsen Group A/S and celebrated the company's 50th anniversary in 2018.
