The new “New Nordic”
by Uta Abendroth | 8/17/2018
Young Scandinavian labels and their designers are riding the wave of continuing success. But why is it that Neo-Scandinavianism is such a hit?
The German silversmith Christian Dell designed the KAISER IDELL™ lamp series in the 1930's. The lamp series carries representation towards the Bauhaus era. This makes it a perfect match to the works of Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm carrying the same elements of the Bauhaus design style. The lights were designed in cooperation with Gebr. Kaiser and Co. The asymmetrical design of the KAISER idell lampshade is a characteristic feature of the lamp design. Manufactured in high-quality steel, the shade is hand-painted in its distinctive original colours. With its unique quality, precision engineering and craftsmanship, the KAISER idell series exuberates originality, sculptural excellence and pure design at its best. The KAISER idell lamp design is today recognised as a classic design icon, which became well known in the late 60’s for its appearance as a table lamp on the desks of famous TV-inspectors, such as the German detective series ‘Der Kommisar’, leading to its nickname, ‘Inspector lamp’. The KAISER idell lamp design is available as a table, floor, pendant and wall lamp. The lamps have been introduced into Republic of Fritz Hansen's collection from October 2010.
