Kaiser idell Pendant Luminaires
Derived but Not Contrived: Pendant Luminaires by Kaiser idell.
The idea that a derivative can be quite independent and valuable while the term is at the moment mostly associated with the permanently dwindling value of financial products that have been passed around to the nth degree is proven by Kaiser idell with this pendant luminaire. In contrast to the table lamp, this is not a reissue of a historical Kaiser idell model; nevertheless, the language of its contours is unmistakable due to the fact that its shade corresponds to that of the table light 6631 R, with the lamp dome placed in the centre. Like the 6631 R, it is of superior quality; in particular, the wet lacquered finish of the surfaces, with which Kaiser idell furnishes all its models, is without rival. Individually or in a series, the Kaiser idell pendant luminaires would make an impression suspended above any table.
Kaiser idell. A Classic with a Technological Foundation.
There are first-hand reports, leaving one with a melancholic feeling in the knowledge, oneself would never be able to make a first-hand experience of that kind. So it was written in our catalogue no. 9 about the quality of Kaiser idell luminaires from Neheim-Hüsten. Well-known amongst connoisseurs, their meteoric rise had begun in the 1920s, although at some point they had disappeared from the market. Happily, in this case, we were proven wrong, because they rose again: and in the same design, quality and craftsmanship that made them so famous. Behind this new edition of the original – not only by us eagerly awaited - are the descendants of the founder of the Kaiser works, as well as two former executives of an English manufacturer of industrial light fittings who took over the Kaiser production facilities in the mid-1980s. The luminaires are manufactured in Denmark, a country which has itself produced several classics in lighting.
Making light work. Protecting the eyes.
In addition to the outstanding quality of their workmanship, Kaiser idell’s renown is also founded on a technical concept that included the most up to date findings on light control and ergonomics. Their luminaires were virtually the answer to meet the challenge which was brought about by the increasing mechanisation of workplaces, where the producers of artificial light sources were not only judged on aesthetics but were also required to meet ergonomic and physiological quality criteria. Against the background of respective scientific insights Christian Dell, who was the master of the metalworks at the Weimar Bauhaus from 1922 to 1925 and directed the metal workshop at the Frankfurter Kunstschule from 1926 to 1933, designed light fittings for office, workshop and household. This collaboration is reflected in the name of the luminaires: "Kaiser idell", which stands for lights by Kaiser, according to an idea from Dell.
