Arne Jacobsen AJ Visor Floor Lamp for Louis Poulson 1957

975.00

Arne Jacobsen Visor Lamp design for Louis Poulsen, 1957
Designed for the SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen
Dark green, o.p.-color metal floorlamp with circular base, enameled steel stem, spun steel shade, and die cast zinc base.
51.5”ht base 11”d 7”w     
Details:
Classic Arne Jacobsen floor lamp in out-of-production olive green.  
This sublime floor lamp demonstrates the potential for liveliness and character  within the minimalist strictures of form and function as only Jacobsen and a handful of others manage to achieve.
Tilting shade for adjustment of light direction for precise reading  light or ambient light. The heavy die cast zinc base in distinctive form of a sloped wedge with circular cutout complements the hard angles of the metal shade above.  All elements executed in metal and uniformly colored coalesce into a unified sculptural statement.
Produced to complement the Series 3300 furniture designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, for which Jacobsen designed every element, from the builiding to the furniture on down to the now classic stainless steel cutlery.
The olive green color offered here and no longer produced, offers the warmth of black with the softness of a mid -tone.  
Jacobsen, a stickler for detail, specified this lamp only in white black and dark green.   Particular about form and color, Jacobsen opted for understatement.  Colors of choice were gray, beige, brown and green.  
Bright colors would have upset the delicate balance of his thoughtful forms and careful attention to scale and balance...  Even brighter values upset the calmness of his world as pictures of the current state of the “vintage room at the SAS hotel,” with it’s white walls illustrate when compared with the original olive green hues of the same rooms as presented by Jacobsen in the sixties.
Jacobsen, in fact, never allowed his chairs to be produced in playful colors while he was alive and similarly accepted no royalties for the four legged version of his three legged ant chair.
