The most versatile of the Arne Jacobsen AJ lighting family, the Arne Jacobsen AJ Table lamp doesn't require any hard-wiring and its lightweight design makes it very easy to move. Maintaining all the features that made Arne Jacobsen's original so desirable, our Arne Jacobsen AJ Table lamp perfectly captures all its retro charm and functional beauty. The sleek conical shade emits a glare-free channel of light, and the tilt and angle mechanisms let you adjust the position of the shade. The base was originally intended to hold an ashtray, but in these healthier times it is more often seen as a distinctive design feature.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ARNE JACOBSEN AJ TABLE LAMP
In 1960, Arne Jacobsen was asked to design the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This included every aspect of the building, from its architecture to the chairs, lighting and silverware inside. The AJ series was developed in 1960 to provide atmospheric, directional lighting in the hotel.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Poul Christiansen was born in 1947, graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1973. Despite working in various architecture and design studios across Denmark in the1960s and 1970s, his most famous work by far was his whimsical mixture of origami and lighting design, particularly in products like his 172 Pendant Lamp. Bringing his experience of using pleated material to the lighting genre, he discovered that folding in mathematical curves gave the lamp shades unique, eye-catching sculptural shapes. The results remain some of the most popular Danish lighting designs of the 20th Century, which still look as heart-stoppingly beautiful today as they did almost 50 years ago.
