LOUIS POULSEN AJ DESK LAMP.
The desk lamp by Arne Jacobsen is a "down-lighter", so the light is mainly spread downwards.
The angle of the hood can be adjusted to the desired light distribution.
The inside of the hood is white enamel, which spreads a pleasant, soft light.
The light source is quite deep, which is fine, so you cannot look directly into the light source.
With a bright incandescent lamp or LED, the reflective inside light is optimally utilized, and you have a beautiful light dropout.
The white AJ desk lamp is supplied with a white cable. The other colors come with a black cable.
The floor lamp is available in 10 colors: Black, White, Dark gray, Light gray, Eggplant, Dark green, Dark blue, Pale Petroleum, Rust (red-brown), Ocher yellow.
E27 normal fitting /(b) 35 x (d) 21.5 x (h) 56 cm.
About the designer:
Arne Jacobsen was born and raised in Copenhagen. In 1927 he graduated as an architect from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. After graduating, he obtained his first job at the office of the Copenhagen city architect and started his own office just two years later. Arne Jacobsen is a world-famous Danish modernist architect. Its buildings are numerous in Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Among his more famous projects are the National Bank in Copenhagen (1971), SAS Royal Hotel & Terminal, Copenhagen (1960) and St. Catherine's College in Oxford, UK (1963). It is said that his fear of flying prevented him from having a full impact on the American architectural environment.
As an architect, Arne Jacobsen had very strong decision-making skills, so that he influenced not only the design of the building itself, but most of the details. Over the years, he ventured into various areas related to his work, such as lighting fixtures, furniture, cutlery, door handles, plumbing, fabrics, and wallpaper patterns. "The Egg" and "The Swan" are two famous chairs designed by Jacobsen.
During the life of Arne Jacobsen he received several prestigious prizes at home and abroad. He became a professor at the Royal Danish Academy for 11 years and thereby influenced a whole generation of Danish architects. Each eventually developed their own architectural language, built on the same rationalist and minimalist approach to architecture.
