With the Bellevue Lamp, Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen embodies the minimalism of the Modernist Movement with the functionalism of Bauhaus.

Viewed as the driving force behind Danish Modernism, Jacobsen’s preference for graceful lines and simple, organic forms are readily recognisable in the Bellevue Lamp. 
The re-launch of this iconic lamp involves a return to the original Bellevue¬†shape in three styles: the floor lamp, desk lamp and wall lamp. To¬†enhance their appeal in a contemporary setting are new colours and a¬†mix of materials: satin polished brass, black with brass, anthracite with¬†brace and versions mixing ivory or grey beige¬†with¬†brass.


Arne Jacobsen

One of Jacobsen’s most celebrated buildings is the SAS Royal Hotel from 1960, now called the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel. Jacobsen designed every detail from sculptural furnishings, such as his elegant SwanTM and EggTM chairs to the lighting, textiles, ashtrays and cutlery.
As an architect and industrial designer, Jacobsen always strove to achieve grace and cohesion. Starting with the functional purpose, which led to radically sim- plified designs with an inherent beauty.
The Bellevue lamp reflects Jacobsen‚Äôs purity and perfect sense of proportions, which he believed was the fundamental factor in design. Originally launched in 1928, Bellevue was inspired by Bauhaus in a shape echoed in Jacobsen‚Äôs subsequent work.‚ÄúJacobsen was an early proponent of mass produced furniture built upon on our Nordic, craft-based heritage,‚ÄĚ explains Martin Kornbek Hansen. ‚ÄúSomething we cherish at &tradition, along with his love of materials and legacy of iconic designs. A true pioneer who embodies our own less-is- more mindset at &tradition.‚ÄĚ


Craft meets art. Function meets form. Material meets potential.
