Large Arne Jacobsen 'Eklipta' Wall or Ceiling Light for Louis Poulsen

854.00

AJ Eklipta was designed by Arne Jacobsen for Louis Poulsen in 1959 for Rødovre Town Hall. Two sizes were produced for this project: 13.7" and large 17.7". They were used indoors on stairways and outdoors as wall lamps. A 8.7" version was later designed for St. Catherine's College in England. Arne Jacobsen preferred the largest model when specifying his own projects. The fixture emits soft comfortable light. The glass is designed to provide a uniformly lit surface. The three-layer handblown opal glass shade has a transparent edge, providing a decorative halo of light around the fixture. Wet location UL rated. Today, AJ Eklipta is used worldwide and in a variety of architectural contexts. All three sizes are still available in authorized re-editions, including incandescent or LED only options. Please inquire if interested in 8.7" or 13.7" size or LED versions. Price is per item. Arne Jacobsen was born and raised in Copenhagen. In 1927, he graduated as an architect from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. After graduating, he obtained his first job at the office of the City Architect of Copenhagen launching his own office only two years later. Arne Jacobsen is a world famous Danish modernistic architect and designer. Over the years, he ventured into various fields related to his work such as lighting, furniture, cutlery, door handles, sanitary fixtures, fabrics and wallpaper patterns. "The Egg" and "The Swan" are two famous chairs designed by Jacobsen.
