AJ Table Lamp

$1,660.00

Arne Jacobsen designed this fixture, among many other features, for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, in 1957. The table lamp yields a pleasant downward directed light with its white painted inner shade. Furthermore, the shade can be tilted to adjust light distribution.

The AJ lamp family is considered to be the design Jacobsen is most famous for worldwide. Apart from the AJ Table, the AJ family consisted of a small table lamp too, a floor lamp, a wall lamp as well as a table mounted lamp that were all to be found around the SAS Royal Hotel after its inauguration in 1960.

The clean distinguished shape of the AJ Lamp with its immaculate light could be seen all around the hotel in copper and stainless steel. Together with the AJ Royal, the AJ lamp family was part of the overall design concept, which Jacobsen created for the hotel. He practically designed everything himself. The parallels between the straight lines and the combination of straight and curved angles in the AJ lamp design are also visible in the geometric contours of his buildings.

Designer

Arne Jacobsen, born and raised in Copenhagen, graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1927 and quickly established his own studio. Known for his strong decision-making as an architect, Jacobsen pioneered 'gesamtkunstwerk', designing buildings and meticulously crafting interior details like furniture and lighting. His iconic works include 'The Egg' and 'The Swan' chairs, and he taught at the Royal Danish Academy for 11 years, influencing a generation of Danish architects with his functionalist and minimalist approach.

Brand

Established in 1874 as a lighting manufacturer, Louis Poulsen has become one of the world's leading producers of lighting. This success is attributed to collaborations with renowned designers and architects like Arne Jacobsen, Øivind Slaatto, Poul Henningsen, and Verner Panton.
