Aage Petersen, a trained sculptor from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, designed this beautiful and practical lamp in brass and black in 1946.
The stand extends at the top making the total height adjustable from 113 to 158 cm. The length and height of the transverse piece are adjustable and the lampshade can be tilted at the top, making it the ideal reading lamp.
Aage Petersen was a trained sculptor from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. His naturalistic sculptural works covered many different themes. His principal work is the Fakse Monument produced in 1938. Aage Petersen also produced wall decorations for Copenhagen Zoo and designed lamps, including many for LE KLINT and other lighting companies.
Le Klint has been manufacturing lamps in Odense since 1943 – “and we still do, but it is also one of Denmark’s “best kept secrets” – we have to do something about this. It is a completely conscious choice that we have maintained our production in Denmark, and it is a very important part of our DNA.”
