The Kaiser Idell table lamp is a Bauhaus classic, reissued by Fritz Hansen, whose adjustable shade and tiltable base make it a practical choice for any space from the office to the bedroom. Fairly small in size, the table lamp fits even on a narrower windowsill or shelf. The regal name of the table lamp is a reference to its original manufacturer, the German company Gebr. Kaiser & Co, as well as designer Christian Dell’s surname combined with the word “idea” – resulting in Kaiser Idell.

Christian Dell

Christian Dell was a German silversmith and designer who became known especially for his lamp designs created for the German company Gebr. Kaiser & Co. In the 1920s, Dell ran the metal workshop at the Bauhaus University, and his designs are, in line with the Bauhaus style, characterised by modern shapes and functionality. After his successful stint as an industrial designer, Dell returned in the late 1940s to his original profession as a silversmith.
