LOUIS POULSEN AJ TABLE LAMP SPECIAL EDITION UNTIL 31-12-20.
The table 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.

About the designer:
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.
