Designed by Arne Jacobsen as part of the Scandinavian Airlines commission to create a hotel for the centre of Copenhagen, the AJ Royal Floor Light graced the lobbies and lounges of the now SAS Royal Hotel and showcases a stainless steel stem and white linen lampshade.
Mirroring the elliptical shape of the lightweight linen shade, the steel grey cast base creates a stylish anchor for the AJ Royal Floor Light. The chain at the bottom of the shade allows for either of the two upward and down-facing bulbs to be turned on or off in any combination, creating a functional customisable lighting piece that is beautifully simple and effective.
While creating the SAS Royal Hotel commission, Jacobsen applied the idea of ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ – which translates as ‘universal artwork’ – meaning each aspect of the architecture and interior of a building perfectly complements the other, working in harmony to create a complete aesthetic statement. His creations for the SAS Royal Hotel included the Swan Chair, the Egg chair and of course this clean and classic AJ Royal Floor Light.
A true piece of design history, the AJ Royal Floor Light’s natural white linen lampshade casts soft emanations either upwards or downwards and would make an elegant addition to a corner or living area in your space.
