Design by Arne Jacobsen, 1956.

Originally designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, the Royal Floor Lamp combines a polished stainless steel stem and an elliptical White linen shade that seems to float in the air. The stem is positioned off-center on the cast-iron, elliptical base. Raised on this support, the shade becomes an extension of the base. The interior of the shade is illuminated by two lamps, one pointing upwards and the other downwards, which can be independently operated.

Designer: Arne Jacobsen
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.View other products by Arne Jacobsen

Since 1985, when Javier Nieto Santa, Gabriel Ordeig Cole and Nina Masó founded Santa & Cole, the sole purpose of the company has been industrial design, an art consisting of seeking the best of each object in order to offer a more pleasant experience in everyday life. Hence, Santa & Cole edit elements of domestic and urban furniture and lighting in a range that is only apparently disperse, converging upon a single concern: not to accumulate, but rather to select; not to enjoy quantity, but rather quality.View other products from Santa & Cole
