AJ Mini Table Lamp


Designer : Arne Jacobsen

SKU: AJ Mini Table Lamp Category:


The AJ Mini table lamp by Louis Poulsen is a smaller version of Arne Jacobsen’s classic design, perfect for the nightstand or windowsill. The iconic form of Louis Poulsen’s AJ range was born in 1957 when the legendary Danish architect Arne Jacobsen designed the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen including its interior and furniture. The timeless lamp has a sculptural design that consists of basic, geometric forms: a cone-shaped shade with a simple cylinder socket. The adjustable shade, painted matt white inside, reflects soft and pleasant light with no glare. The AJ range has become a Danish design icon and one of the most beloved pieces created by Arne Jacobsen.

The AJ Mini table lamp in stainless steel was launched in 2020 in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the opening of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.

Trained as an architect in Copenhagen, Jacobsen took up the profession already in the 1920s. His most famous buildings include Arhus Town Hall in Denmark, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and St Catherine's College in Oxford England. His experiments into plywood resulted in the Ant chair in 1952 and the 3107 in 1955 (also known as the Seven chair), both manufactured by Fritz Hansen. The work on the SAS Royal Hotel resulted in some of his most outstanding designs, including the Egg and Swan chairs, a stainless steel cutlery set now made by silver manufacturer Georg Jensen and a series of lamps, manufactured by Louis Poulsen. In 1967 he designed a series of stainless steel tableware for Stelton. A perfectionist and a master of detail, Jacobsen worked right up to his death in 1971. In central London, his Royal Danish Embassy on Sloane Street was completed only in 1977.

Louis Poulsen

Established in Denmark more than 140 years ago, Louis Poulsen is an international manufacturer of designer lamps with an impressive range embracing iconic classics and innovative, contemporary designs, for private and professional use. Closely together with world-famous designers and architects such as Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton the company has created icons as the PH Artichoke and PH5. Behind every Louis Poulsen design is the story of its creation and the refinement of the designer's idea and vision of light – all in harmony with Louis Poulsen's lighting philosophy based on the principles developed by Poul Henningsen in the 1920s. The philosophy is founded on the concepts of function, comfort and ambience.
