The KAISER idell series that was designed from the German silversmith from the beginning of the 1930s embodies the style of the Bauhaus movement at that time. Dell, who worked as the foreman of the Bauhaus metal workshop in Weimar among other jobs, is considered one of the key figures of the Bauhaus style which was also an important influence for Danish design. This can be seen in the later works of Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm, whose designs show obvious elements of Bauhaus shaping.
The asymmetric appearance of the KAISER idell reflector screens is a fundamental characteristic of the whole lamp collection. The reflector, made out of high-quality steel, is available in the unmistakable original colours. Made with great effort and skill, it is lacquered in high gloss and then polished by hand.
With its unsurpassed clear design, the precise construction and the high artistic craftsmanship during production, the lamps from the KAISER idell series are 100% original, absolutely timeless and thus sustainable and stable in value.
The lamps even achieved TV stardom. Since the 1960es, different versions appear again and again on the TV screen. They were especially noticable on the desks of several famous TV officers and investigators. This is the reason why the table model 6631 is lovingly called the “commissioner lamp.”
The KAISER idell series consists of table, stand, ceiling and wall lamps and was integrated into the Republic of Fritz Hansen collection in 2010.
