LOUIS POULSEN AJ ARNE JACOBSEN FLOOR LAMP.
The floor 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 floor 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 / 130 cm high.
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 City Architect of Copenhagen launching his own office only two years later. Arne Jacobsen is a world famous Danish modernistic architect. His 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 inhibited him from making a full impact on the American Architectural environment.
As an architect, Arne Jacobsen had very strong decision making skills, making it possible for him to influence not only the design of the building itself, but the majority of the details. Over the years, he ventured into various fields related to his work, such as light fixtures, furniture, cutlery, door handles, sanitary fixtures, fabrics, and wallpaper patterns. "The Egg" and "The Swan" are two famous chairs designed by Jacobsen.
During Arne Jacobsen’s lifetime, he received several prestigious awards both at home and abroad. He became a professor at the Royal Danish Academy for 11 years and through that he influenced an entire generation of Danish Architects. Each eventually developed their own architectural language, built upon the same rationalistic and minimalist approach toward architecture.
