Arne Jacobsen AJ Desk Lamp

The Arne Jacobsen AJ Desk Lamp shares the elegant and understated style of the other AJ lamps. Designed for the SAS Royal Hotel Copenhagen in 1960 the AJ Desk lamp has gained a popular appeal among design lovers. The unique swivel function of the shade and its asymmetrical design allow the light to be easily directed. The circle in the base was originally intended to position an ashtray, and remains an interesting design feature that lightens the design. Even 50 years later, this timeless piece continues to enchant.

ItaliaDesigns produces this classic piece in drawn steel and can be supplied in a choice of colours.

About the Designer

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen

A career encapsulated by flirting between controversy and art nouveaux genius, Arne Jacobsen established global infamy by combining modernist ideals with a Nordic love of naturalism. Born in Copenhagen in 1902, Jacobsen secured an education at the Royal Academy of Arts in his homeland, drawing all future inspiration with the study of leading architects and designers of that era.

Despite elements of opposition towards avant-garde principals and idiosyncrasies within his architecture, Jacobsen is most decorated for his work within interior, furniture, textile and porcelain design - praised for a clear styling and the successful combination of form and function. There can be no greater compliment paid than the sheer fact that some of the Dane’s work received classic status during his lifetime, reaching cinematic acclaim with the use of his pieces in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968: A Space Odyssey.

Arne Jacobsen’s use of propelled curves in minimalist fashion earned his furniture countless awards, including the 1968 International Design Award from the American Institute of Interior Designers, the 1967 ID-prize from the Danish Society of Industrial Design and the 1957 Milan XI Triennale in Italy.
