Scissor wall lamp Kaiser idell
The scissors in the head ...
... designers always have when it is necessary to design utility objects that (first) can be variably unfolded to a useful size and (second) make themselves small when not in use. An exemplary example of the productive use of scissor mechanisms can be found here.
Classics of the Modern Age. Kaiser idell.
Some prospective acquaintances leave you with the melancholy feeling of knowing that you will never pick up with them. In this light, we introduced the Kaiser idell lamps from Neheim-Hüsten in our catalogue no. 9: Their meteoric rise had begun in the 1920s; in later years, they were famous among connoisseurs, but then they disappeared from the market. In this case, we were fortunately mistaken, because they are back: in the same design, quality and craftsmanship that made them so famous. Behind the long-awaited new edition of the original, you find the descendants of the founder of the Kaiserwerke as well as two former executives of an English industrial lighting manufacturer who took over the production facilities of the Kaiserwerke in the mid-1980s.
A Benefit for the Quality of the Work and Protection for the Eyes.
As their thumbprint, the technically well-thought-out Kaiser idell luminaires for office, workshop and household carried superior light control and ergonomics, combined with outstanding workmanship. Christian Dell, master metalworker at the Weimar Bauhaus in the years 1922 to 1925 and subsequently head of the metal workshop at the Frankfurt School of Art until 1933 paved the way for these innovations. It’s been a few years, but the lamps reappeared. They are produced in Denmark and Latvia now, partly according to the original designs and partly as new constructions. No matter what, it’s easy to recognize the high standards of design, quality and craftsmanship in all the models – immediately visible in the carefully hand-painted and polished reflector shades (and feet in the case of the table lamps).
