About the design

The most versatile of the Arne Jacobsen AJ lighting family, the Arne Jacobsen AJ Table lamp (AJ Table). This is the smallest of the two table lamps in the series.

A true timeless desk light – a sleek conical shade, made in spun steel, held by an steel arm ending in an elegantly sloped wedge with a circular cutout as base, all finished with white wet painted lacquer. The heavy die cast zinc base features fully functional incorporated white on/off switch.

In the late 1950’s Arne Jacobsen was asked to design the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. This included every aspect of the building, from its architecture to the chairs, lighting and silverware. The Royal Hotel project also included other of his most famed designs; the Egg and Swan chairs as well as a number of lighting solutions.

The AJ series was developed to provide atmospheric, directional lighting in the hotel. The AJ Table is part of the Arne Jacobsen AJ lighting series alongside the AJ Floor Lamp and AJ Wall Lamp.

Due to the usability as a working desk lamp, Arne Jacobsen expanded the shade to obtain a glare-free channel of light, while the tilt and angle mechanisms let you adjust the position of the shade. The circular cutout in the base was originally intended to accommodate an ashtray.

The AJ Table has been in production at Louis Poulsen since 1960, and still is to this day (in updated versions and colors), as the popularity never went away!
