The AJ Wall Lamp is a design by the Danish design icon Arne Jacobsen for the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen which was inaugurated in 1960. Arne Jacobsen not only created the building, he also designed the whole interior furnishing including amongst others, furniture, cutlery, fabrics and lights, he created one of the first design hotels in the world.
The AJ Wall Lamp is based on the same principles as the AJ standard lamp. The shade has however been enlarged for better use as a work light. The standard lamp consists of a lamp holder in an enamelled brass rod. There is a tilting mechanism in the rod.
The angles of the conical metal shade have been made so that they correspond to the lamp holder angle, it was thought-out like that but in reality the angles have been adapted a little as a visual correction. When the lamp is tilted downwards, the lamp holder edge is horizontal.
The interior of the AJ Royal wall lamp shade is matt white enamelled. The bulb shielding is efficient; you can’t look into the light source. When a clear bulb is inserted, the light is used best and the light beams are clearly differentiated.
The AJ Royal Wall Lamp by Arne Jacobsen attracts attraction through its exceptional swinging and turning shade with an asymmetric shape which spreads the light accordingly. AJ Royal – a modern classic.
