Kaiser idell Pendant Luminaires
Derived but Not Contrived: Pendant Luminaires by Kaiser idell.
While the term derivative is at the moment predominantly associated with the permanently dwindling value of financial products that have been passed around to the nth degree, Kaiser idell proves the concept of an appreciable and valuably contributing derivative with this pendant luminaire an excellent idea. In contrast to the table lamp, this lamp is not a reissue of a historical Kaiser idell model; nevertheless, the design language is unmistakably recognizable in its contours since its shade corresponds to that of the 6631 R – with one difference: the lamp dome’s positioning in the centre. Like the 6631 R, the lamp is of superior quality; in particular, the wet lacquered finish of the surfaces, with which Kaiser idell furnishes all its models, is without rival. Suspended individually or in a series, the Kaiser idell pendant luminaires convey a lasting impression whether they light up a table or illuminate the place of your choice.
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).
