Ansgar Fog og Erik Mørup became good friends in 1902 when they both worked in the same a grocery store in Århus, Denmark. Soon after they became business partners. They would start out as wholesales but success turned the company into production as well.
For Fog & Mørup it was always about quality. And one of the main reasons they kept producing the best of the time was because they cared for their employees. They were one of the first companies in Denmark to pay their workers dividends. Erik Mørup believed that if the employees knew they would get part of the profit, they would care more about the materials and tools they were working with and ultimately create better quality. This chandelier is a testament to that belief.
