Made in Denmark by Louis Poulsen

AJ Eklipta was designed for the City Hall in Rødovre, Denmark. It was used indoors for staircases and outdoors as a wall fixture. Eklipta was produced in two sizes. When Arne Jacobsen used the fixtures for staircases, he always preferred the largest version. As a true functionalistic master, Arne Jacobsen created AJ Eklipta in a time period when Danish design had an exceptional quality to it, and today this fixture is still used in all kinds of architectural environments worldwide.

Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. His cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. The Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952, propelled both Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. At the end of the 50's Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, which introduced the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300 to the design world. Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. His furniture and other design work have become a national and international heritage.

AJ Eklipta provides any space with a soft and diffused light. The construction of the glass ensures an evenly lit surface. The tri-layer handblown glass shade has a clear edge, creating a halo of light around the perimeter. Suitable for ceiling and wall applications.
