Kaiser Idell 6631 Table Lamp - Replica

It’s not hard to see why the Kaiser Idell range became perhaps the most popular and successful of Christian Dell’s many lighting designs. The master silversmith was an early influencer of the Bauhaus movement, and it’s those principles that shine through in the Kaiser Idell Table Lamp’s iconic design.

In its time, the design was truly innovative. In fact, ‘Idell’ combines the name of its designer with Idee – the German word for idea. Effortlessly combining elegance and functionality, this iron table lamp features an asymmetrical dome shade and a beautifully curved arm. Both the arm and the lampshade are adjustable for a practical desk lamp design equally well-suited to a cosy living room side table or a working studio desk.

We produce the Kaiser Idell Table Lamp 6631 Luxus in a range or bold and neutral colours to complement the bedroom, living room or office.

Bulb not included.

About the Designer

Christian Dell

Christian Dell

Born in 1893, Christian Dell was a German silversmith who went on to become one of the founding influences behind the Bauhaus design movement. Dell completed an apprenticeship as a silversmith alongside his silver forging studies at the Königlich Preußischen Zeichenakademie in Hanau before taking roles as a silversmith in Dresden, Munich and Berlin.

It was while working as the foreman at the Bauhaus metal workshop in Weimar from 1922 to 1925 that he turned his attention to metal light fixtures for offices and workshops in collaboration with László Moholy-Nagy. As head of the metal workshop at the Frankfurter Kunstschule from 1926 onwards, he pioneered early works with aminoplastics and Bakelite and created many lighting designs, perhaps the most highly regarded of which was the mass-produced Kaiser Idell range. 

Following the end of the Second World War, Dell opened a jewellery shop in Wiesbaden and manufactured silverware until 1955. He died in 1974.
