In homage to Arne Jacobsen’s legendary architectural Bellevue projects, the Bellevue Lamp is captured in all its authenticity – in a lovely plug-in table lamp that comes in two versions; with and without switch.
Boasting its signature swan neck and 45-degree shade, it is the epitome of beauty and simplicity in a curvaceous silhouette that beckons you to come closer. Watch for a modern mix of intriguing new colours and materials. Part of &tradition’s desire to keep this icon alive in the hearts and minds for generations to come.
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 simplified designs with inherent beauty.
The Bellevue lamp reflects Jacobsen’s 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’s subsequent work.“Jacobsen was an early proponent of mass-produced furniture built upon on our Nordic, craft-based heritage,” explains Martin Kornbek Hansen. “Something 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.”
