Description from Design Within Reach

Arne Jacobsen created his AJ Floor Lamp (1960) to echo the oblique angles of his Series 3300 furniture, which included the Egg Chair and the Swan Chair. The heavy cast iron base of the lamp is a sloped wedge with a circular cutout that was originally designed to hold an ashtray, but is equally successful left empty, as it mirrors the shape of circles and cylinders found throughout the series. To maximize the lamp’s functionality as a reading light, Jacobsen created a shade that tilts up or down, directing maximum light to where it’s needed. Like the Swan and Egg chairs, the AJ Floor Lamp was designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, for which Jacobsen designed every element, from the skyscraper structure to the stainless steel cutlery. Bulb (not included): incandescent 60W/120V/A19 frosted.

  • Materials: Spun steel shade; steel pole; die-cast zinc base.
