AJ Table

01 product description

Product description

Designed in 1960 for SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark - Distinct asymmetrical shape - Tiltable head - Base of the table lamp was originally intended to accommodate an ashtray but now contributes solely to the design - The uniqueness and quality of the concept make it a modern classic

Concept
The fixture emits downward directed light. The angle of the shade can be adjusted to optimize light distribution. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light.

Finish
Blue/Green, petroleum, red, sand or yellow/green, black, graphite grey or white, wet painted.

Story behind the product
The AJ Table is on the same principles as AJ Floor, but due to the useability as a working desk lightfixture the shade have been expanded. The standard lamp consists of a lampholder in an enamelled brass pipe. A tilting mechanism has been installed in the pipe. The angles of the conic metal shade are made so it flush with the lampholder at the top, at least that was the intention, but in reality it is raised a little as an optical correction. When the lamp is tilted downwards, the edge is horizontal. The inside of the shade is mat white enamel. The screening is effective, you cannot look up into the light source. Using a clear incandescent lamp the light is exploited the best way and the the light rays delineated preciesly. Rumours says that the hole in the desk plate was made for an insertion of an ash tray.
