Design by Arne Jacobsen,1929.
The Bellevue Lamp was Jacobsen's first lighting design inspired by modern tubular steel manufacture and modernist design of the Bauhaus era. The 45° cut shade appeared again on his famous Bellevue petrol station and went on to be a feature of some of his later lighting designs. Its form direct the light without excessive glare. The simple goose-neck design and clean construction echoes the modernist ambitions of his peers such Le Corbusier, Mies Van Der Rohe, and Alvar Aalto. The lamps form comes from its intended function yet it is so simple that it transcends into the realm of art and theater.

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.
