Design by Arne Jacobsen, 1956.
AJ Eklipta was originally designed for the City Hall in Rødovre, Denmark to illuminate indoor staircases and exterior walls. As a true functionalistic master, Arne Jacobsen created AJ Eklipta in a time period when Danish design had an exceptional quality to it, and today this fixture is still used in all kinds of architectural environments worldwide. AJ Eklipta provides the space with soft, diffused illumination. The construction of the glass ensures an evenly lit surface. The triple-layer handblown glass shade has a clear edge, creating a halo of light around the perimeter.
The Ceiling/Wall box is made of spun aluminum with a white powder coated finish and the diffuser is made of handblown white opal glass. Mounted directly to finished surface over a recessed 4" octagonal junction box.
Note: 8.7" D for Wall Mount only, 13.7" D can be Ceiling or Wall Mounted.
Material(s): Aluminum, glass
Lamp Type: incandescent, halogen
Listing: UL, cUL, IBEW, Damp
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.
Creating ideal functional, comfortable and ambience-generating lighting for people has been Louis Poulsen Lighting's mission from its incorporation. Louis Poulsen Lighting's overall ambition is to create harmonious and people-friendly lighting.
The AJ Eklipta wall light is so simple and so beautiful. It seems to float in space. By design, the reflects in front and behind the milk glass cover. I couldn't be happier.
