It's shocking to think of something so streamlined and modern as the Bellevue AJ9 Wall Light being nearly a century old. But it was, in fact, 1929 when Arne Jacobsen fashioned the simple goose-neck silhouette and clean construction that echoed the then-budding modernist movement's embrace of the industrial. Consider the use of cast iron in the base, the steel tubing and fabric cord. The 45-degree cut of the shade, to shield the eye from direct light, would appear again and again in this icon's work. However, we think the true legacy of the Bellevue Collection—be it this wall lamp, or the table or floor lights—has to be Mr. Jacobsen's modest yet powerful testament to functional simplicity. No wonder this truly modern classic was reissued by fellow Danes &Tradition.
