Design by Arne Jacobsen, 1956.
Designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, the Royal combines a polished stainless steel stem and an elliptical linen shade that seems to float in the air. The stem is off-centered on a cast-iron, elliptical base. Raised on this support, the shade becomes an extension of the base. The interior of the shade is lit by two lamps, one pointing upwards and the other downwards, which can be independently operated. Arne Jacobsen placed these gently softened lights in the hotel entrance, bringing the chairs into view while throwing the rest of the lobby into shadow.
The Royal lamp is the essence of Jacobsen's theory that economy and functionality equal style. Choose white or beige shade.

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was trained as a bricklayer and graduated from The Technical Society's school in 1924 and Copenhagen Art Academy 1927. In 1928 he received the Academy's gold medal, but prior to this, when only 23, he was awarded a silver medal at the 1925 Paris World Exhibition — the first of numerous honours that became a natural accompaniment to his artistic activities, his untiring search and his brilliant conceptions, made manifest by many successes in competitions at home and abroad.See other lights/products from Arne Jacobsen
Santa & Cole
Since the late 1980's, Santa & Cole has lived for industrial design, an art consisting of focusing on everyday objects in order to seek a better use experience, thereby leading them to reflect upon material culture. Hence, Santa & Cole edit elements of domestic and urban furniture and lighting, plant elements (which are living matter) and books (which are likewise alive). A range that is only apparently disperse, converging upon a single concern: not to accumulate, but rather to select; not to enjoy quantity, but rather quality.

Classic design, creates warm light
Great looking, understated design. Lower bulb of the lamp creates warm, useable light at seating area and the upper buld creates nice accent lighting to the room. We are using the lamp in a large volume room and this lamp has warmed up the room compared to the torch lamp that was preivously in this space.

Love the classic simplicity of this floor lamp.
We use the bottom light solo for ambience in the evening. This lamp works well in our contemporary space. It is worth the price. We enjoy the classic simplicity of the design and are pleased with the quality of materials used for the lamp.
