Detailed information

AJ FLOOR Lamp – a classic floor lamp designed by the world renowned Arne Jacobsen in 1957, produced for Louis Poulsen – and this vintage edition is in very good vintage condition! Iconic Danish lighting design!

Timeless floor lamp with its sleek conical shade, made in spun steel, held by an steel arm ending slightly angled on an elegantly sloped wedge with a circular cutout as base, all finished with white wet painted lacquer. The heavy is made up by die cast zinc for stability and the circular cutout was originally intended to accommodate an ashtray.

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 FLOOR Lamp is part of the Arne Jacobsen AJ lighting series alongside the AJ Table Lamp and AJ Wall Lamp.

For that purpose Arne Jacobsen created a shade, which only directs the light downwards in a concentrated beam of light. The shade is adjustable both upwards and downwards (for widening and narrowing the illumination), enabling you to direct the light to where it is needed.

The AJ FLOOR Lamp 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!

A true timeless design classic! Iconic floor lamp that would fit perfectly anywhere in the modern home – no matter where you place this classic beauty it will blend perfectly with your other interior with it’s unintrusive gorgeousness.

All original with 2 m (6′ 6.7″) black plastic cord with a round incorporated on/off switch placed at convenient length on the cord and standard Euro style plug – which is easily changed to your specific plug. Tested and fully functional!

Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
