Design Arne Jacobsen, 1957
Steel stem, spun steel shade, die cast zinc base
Made in Denmark by Louis Poulsen
Designed in 1957 for SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark.The AJ Floor lamp creates direct and angled illumination. The lighting characteristics make it suitable when placed in a situation where distinct and directed illumination is required.
The AJ Floor is designed amoung a lot of other lighting fixtures for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The standard lamp consists of a lampholder in an enamelled brass pipe, the dimensions and construction of which are reminiscent of his ceiling lamp in the council chamber of Roedovre. A tilting mechanism has been installed in the pipe. The angles of the conic metal shade are made so it flush with the lampholder at the top, at least that was the intention, but in reality it is raised a little as an optical correction. When the lamp is tilted downwards, the edge is horizontal. The inside of the shade is mat white enamel. The screening is effective, you cannot look up into the light source. Using a clear incandescent lamp the light is exploited the best way and the the light rays delineated preciesly.
