Arne Jacobsen (Denmark, 1902-1971)
The Danish architect and designer combined modernist principles and a Nordic love for nature with an obsession in finding the perfect proportions. His creations feature simple, elegant and functional forms.
This floor lamp was designed by Jacobsen for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and manufactured by Louis Poulsen during the early 1950s.
