Story: The Bellevue Lamp was Jacobsen's first lighting design inspired by modern tubular steel manufacture and modernists design of the Bauhaus era. The 45 degree cut shade appeared again on his famous Bellevue petrol station and went on to be a feature of some of his later lighting designs. Its form directs the light without excessive glare. The simple goose-neck design and clean construction echoes the modernist ambitions of his piers such as Le Corbusier, Mies Van Der Rohe and Alvar Aalto.
The lamps form comes from its intended function yet it is so simple that it transends into the realm of art and theatre.
