&Tradition Bellevue AJ2 Floor Lamp
Design by Arne Jacobsen,1929.
The Bellevue Lamp was Jacobsen's first lighting design inspired by modern tubular steel manufacture and modernist design of the Bauhaus era. The 45° cut shade appeared again on his famous Bellevue petrol station and went on to be a feature of some of his later lighting designs. Its form direct the light without excessive glare. The simple goose-neck design and clean construction echoes the modernist ambitions of his peers such Le Corbusier, Mies Van Der Rohe, and Alvar Aalto. The lamps form comes from its intended function yet it is so simple that it transcends into the realm of art and theater.
