Model: JL015-F Name: arne jacobsen floor lamp Product Size: H 1300 |Base 270| Shade 330mm Material: Steel Color: White,black,grey Description: arne jacobsen floor lamp was designed by arne jacobsen in 1957. The AJ floor lamp was designed, among other lighting fixtures, for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The AJ table lamp is on the same principles as the AJ floor, but due to the useability as a working desk lamp the shade has been expanded. The base of the table lamp was originally intended to accommodate an ashtray but now contributes solely to the design. The standard lamp consists of a lampholder in an enameled brass pipe. A tilting mechanism has been installed in the pipe. The angles of the conic metal shade are made to be flush with the lampholder at the top, at least that was the intention, but in reality it is raised a little as an optical correction. When the lamp is tilted downwards, the edge is horizontal. The inside of the shade is matt white enamel. The light source is effectively screened for diffused lighting. Using a clear incandescent bulb the light is exploited the best way and the the light rays delineated preciesly. Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. His cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. The Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952, propelled both Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. At the end of the 50's Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, which introduced the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300 to the design world.
