ARNE JACOBSEN BELLEVUE AJ FLOOR LAMP
In 1929 Arne Jacobsen, one of the grandfathers of Danish mid-century design, first brought his considerable skills to lighting fixtures. Predictably, the Bellevue AJ Floor Lamp is a stunning icon; a powder-coated monochrome masterpiece that fills any space with light or can be directed on its masterful swan neck. Jacobsen would reuse the asymmetrical shade for his most famous lamp many years later, but the Bellevue's simple grace and efficiency deserve to be considered alongside his greatest designs.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ARNE JACOBSEN BELLEVUE AJ FLOOR LAMP
The Bellevue Lamp was inspired by tubular steel manufacture and actually owes more to the Bauhaus school of design than many of the Danish traditions Jacobsen emerged from. The understated form and design that reflects the production process itself are traits shared with the period's German modernists. The lamp was initially designed for a House of the Future exhibition in Copenhagen. Matching the angles of the house, the Bellevue was the lamp of the future and arguably still is.
