Originally designed for St Catherine’s College, the AJ Oxford was created by Arne Jacobsen as a part of his modernist gesamtkunstwerk, that lies nestled among the classic buildings of Oxford University. • The original AJ Oxford has been updated with a modern monochrome colour palette complemented by geometric forms and elegant details such as the stem smoothly merging into the circular formed base of the lamp. Exceptional light

The beautiful mouthblown opal glass shades of the AJ Oxford lamp, illuminate the room with a soft diffused light that is glare free and creates a wonderful atmosphere.

The AJ Oxford with its metal top shade and opal glass lower shade, provides a soft and pleasant downward directed light, perfect as a desk lamp. Design Details • When you take a closer look at the AJ Oxford, you begin to notice little details. For example, the brass screw that holds the shade in place, as well as the elegant way the cable is channelled through the stem of the lamp.

  • Arne Jacobsen

    <p>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. His main works include: town halls in ?rhus, Søllerød, Rødovre and Glostrup, SAS-building (Royal Hotel) in Copenhagen, Munkegårds School in Gentofte, Toms Chocolate Factory in Ballerup, The Danish National Bank headquarters, a sports hall in Landskrona, St. Catherine's College, Oxford and Hamburgerische Elektrizitätswerke's administration building. In 1932, Arne Jacobsen began collaboration with Fritz Hansens Eft. A/S, and over a period of years designed a series of chairs which are now recognised as milestones in the development of modern furniture. They include "The Ant" (1951), "The Egg" (1957), and "The Swann"(1957). But he was also an innovator in other design fields, such as the tableware series "Cylinda-line" in stainless steel. Arne Jacobsen was a professor at the Art Academy, and received honorary doctorates from a number of foreign universities and academies. Cylinda-line was awarded the ID-prize 1967 by The Danish Society of Industrial Design and The International Design Award 1968 by The American Institute of Interior Designers.</p>
