Louis Poulsen AJ Eklipta Wall Lamp
Design by Arne Jacobsen, 1956.
By Louis Poulsen.
AJ Eklipta was originally designed for the City Hall in Rødovre, Denmark to illuminate indoor staircases and exterior walls. As a true functionalistic master, Arne Jacobsen created AJ Eklipta in a time period when Danish design had an exceptional quality to it, and today this fixture is still used in all kinds of architectural environments worldwide. AJ Eklipta provides the space with soft, diffused illumination. The construction of the glass ensures an evenly lit surface. The triple-layer handblown glass shade has a clear edge, creating a halo of light around the perimeter.
The Ceiling/Wall box is made of spun aluminum with a white powder coated finish and the diffuser is made of handblown white opal glass. Mounted directly to finished surface over a recessed 4" octagonal junction box.
