One of the original designs of the iconic bauhaus movement
A 21st century classic, Christian Dells designs have become synonymous with contemporary styled spaces. The Kaiser Idell Luxus Table Lamp uses the practical profile of traditional clean lined geometry and combines it with the sculptural simplicity to create this modern formed masterpiece. The original Bauhaus design provides a warm direct light from its elegantly shaped dome, with a swivel joint for functionality. The term “Idell” is a play on the word “idea” and designer Christian Dell’s last name. The “Kaiser” part of the name is a reference to the original manufacturer Gebr. Kaiser & Co. It is from the contraction of these terms the Kaiser idell series got its name.
