Aarhus wall lamp

By Santa & Cole

£324.00

  • Description

    In 1946, Arne Jacobsen and Erik Möller built the new, truly representative council building in the Danish city of Aarhus, and also took on the task of tackling its interior design. This is how this widely-used wall lamp came to see the light of day, combining the sturdiness of a brass skirt and the delicateness of an opal-shaped blouse, in the form of a loosely organic oval. Firm, formal tenderness in the civil service.

  • Designer
    Arne Jacobsen

    Trained as an architect in Copenhagen, Jacobsen took up the profession already in the 1920s. His most famous buildings include Arhus Town Hall in Denmark, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and St Catherine's College in Oxford England. His experiments into plywood resulted in the Ant chair in 1952 and the 3107 in 1955 (also known as the Seven chair), both manufactured by Fritz Hansen.

    The work on the SAS Royal Hotel resulted in some of his most outstanding designs, including the Egg and Swan chairs, a stainless steel cutlery set now made by silver manufacturer Georg Jensen and a series of lamps, manufactured by Louis Poulsen. In 1967 he designed a series of stainless steel tableware for Stelton. A perfectionist and a master of detail, Jacobsen worked right up to his death in 1971. In central London, his Royal Danish Embassy on Sloane Street was completed only in 1977.
