Description
Arne Jacobsen - Louis Poulsen - Hanging lamp (1) - AJ Royal 50cm
Denmark - 1950-1959 - Aluminium

This AJ Royal pendant lamp by Arne Jacobsen is issued by the Danish design lamb brand Louis Poulsen and dates from the period 1980-1990.

The wiring has been completely renewed, using the original ceramic fittings.
The AJ Royal is one of the designs Arne Jacobsen developed in 1957 for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen (Radisson collection). The hotel opened its doors in 1960 and with its 22 floors formed the first real high-rise of Copenhagen.
The segmented spherical design of 1957 is seen as one of the first steps Jacobsen took back towards the basic geometric shapes that characterize the later designs of this world-famous Danish architect. The AJ Royal was part of the design concept that Jacobsen developed for the hotel, some of whose designs have achieved legendary status.
