Since its very first production, Christian Dell's designs for the Kaiser Idell lamps have been phenomenally popular. The slender geometry, minimal finish and exquisite functionality of this floor version make it the most versatile in the Kaiser Idell range. Whether you are after industrial chic, or a design to complement a functional and minimalist interior, the Floor Lamp will bring some formal elegance into your home. Lamp height and shade can also be adjusted to ensure this stunning centrepiece is producing the exact light and atmosphere you are after.
The Kaiser Idell Floor Lamp is pure Bauhaus. Its formal elegance is grounded by the functional innovations that Dell perfected whilst the Master Craftsman at the school between 1922-25. This period marks the beginning of a golden-age of design within the Weimar Republic and Dell taught this influential generation his expertise as a designer and silversmith. But the lamp series is not all functional seriousness. The name reveals a little of Dell's sly sense of humour; it combines his name and word for idea in Germany. It is quite literally, a bright idea.
1893 - 1974 (Germany)
Christian Dell spent the majority of his life training as a silversmith in various institutions, before helping define the tough and effective aesthetic of the Bauhaus school. In that design school's formative years he acted as the foreman of the metal workshop and was responsible for teaching a new generation his functional and reductive approach. The Kaiser Idell range is Dell's most well-regarded contribution, but he worked tirelessly on lamps, jewellery and metal sculpture, combining his practical approach with artistic sensibilities. Later in his career Dell also did pioneering work with early plastic technology.
