While he was arguably better known for his furniture designs, just about everything Arne Jacobsen created approaches - or surpasses - iconic. The Louis Poulsen AJ Table Lamp was born out of a landmark commission to design the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, including all the furnishings. Offering directed down light, the immediately recognizable flared shade is adjustable. New color options - reflective of Jacobsen's favored color palette - were introduced in conjunction with the lamp's 50th anniversary in 2010.
When you hear the name Louis Poulsen, you think distinctive modern Danish lighting. From the classic icons of the 1920s to more recent pieces, all Louis Poulsen lighting is created based on a deep-felt respect for architecture, understanding the emotional effect of lighting and the belief that shadow is just as aesthetically important as light. All three aspects manifest themselves in the sculptural layering and comfortable, glare-free light of Louis Poulsen pendants, wall, table and floor lamps.
