    Christian Dell Kaiser-idell Luxus Floor Lamp
    German silversmith Christian Dell was a metalworking teacher at the Bauhaus from 1922–25. Collaborating with modernist luminaries László Moholy-Nagy and Marianne Brandt, Dell helped shape the Bauhaus approach to industrial lighting. He started designing lighting for various companies in 1926, including Gebrüder Kaiser & Co., the one that produced the first lamp in the Kaiser-idell Collection (1931). With the first part of the name being for the factory that produced it, the latter is an amalgam of Dell and idee , the German word for 'idea.” Brought back into production by Fritz Hansen in 2011, the collection is crafted to the designer’s original specifications, including his worldwide-patented swivel joint for shade adjustability – revolutionary in 1931. Bulb (not included): incandescent 60W/A19/E27, halogen energy saver 28–52W or comparable CFL/LED. This is an authentic collection by Fritz Hansen. Each lamp dome is embossed with 'Original Kaiser-idell.” Made in Denmark.

    Fritz Hansen Kaiser Idell Luxus Floor Lamp
    Design Christian Dell, 1931. Steel & brass. Made in Denmark by Fritz Hansen. The Kaiser idell™ collection is available in different versions: Table, wall, floor lamps and pendants. Kaiser idell is an original Bauhaus design. The series is based on a world-patented swivel joint and the characteristic dome embossed with "ORIGINAL KAISER-idell". Beginning in 1926 Dell sketched lights, often for the lamp factory Gebr. Kaiser & Co. The first catalogue was launched in 1936 in which the table lamp model 6631 Luxus appeared for the first time. This lamp soon became the undisputed top model of the KAISER idell™ series - then, as well as today, the symbol of noble Germanic design, exquisite choice of materials and precise engineering. Christian Dell was a German silversmith and designer. From 1922-25 he worked as foreman of the metal workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar where he was the man behind a highly innovative and pioneering style of design. The Bauhaus occupies a place of its own in the history of the 20th century culture; architecture, design, art and new media. As one of the first colleges of design, it brought together a number of the most outstanding contemporary architects and artists. The lamps are made in steel and brass and the lampshades are hand painted in high gloss. The chrome-plated lamp elements consist of hand polished and silver-soldered brass. The term "iddll" is a reference to the word idea and his lastname, Dell. "Kaiser" is a reference to the original manufacturer - KAISER idell. Luxus floor lamp: 16.7" h | shade: 11.2" dia. | requires 1x52W max Osram energy saver halogen bulb.

    Henning Koppel Candlestick 1139
    This candlestick is a good example of how Koppel’s later designs adopt a tauter idiom compared with the early very organic works like his pitchers. The design is still very strong and superior but more simple, symmetric and less curvy. To get a good feeling for Henning Koppel and his world please read the book 'The World of Henning Koppel” by Niels-Jørgen Kaiser. In all its simplicity this candlestick requires great accuracy of the craftsmen. The metal spinner will make the body and the actual candle holder on his spinning machine and after a first grinding the silversmith will then solder on the bottom and the candle holder. Design year: 1965. Materials: Sterling silver. Measurements: H: 13.7 cm / 5.39 inches Ø: 7.7 cm / 3.03 inches.
