Arne Jacobsen 50th anniversary AJ floor and table lamps by Louis Poulsen

Arne1

Not just any old Arne Jacobsen designs, these are the 50th anniversary AJ floor and table lamps by Louis Poulsen.

Yes, first seen in 1960 as part of the design for the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Copenhagen, they've been reissued in five new colours for 2010 based on Jacobsen's original colour concept, two of which you can see above (more colours in the floor version are pictured over the page).

The design is simple, but effective – that asymmetric conical shape of the head indicates the direction of the light, with a tilt mechanism to aim at wherever you like.

The shade is made of spun steel, the base die cast zinc and stem is steel. Price? £552 for the floor version, £497 for the table light.
