AJ Eklipta was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1959 for Rødovre Town Hall. Two different sizes were produced for this project – 350 mm and 450 mm. They were used indoors on stairways and outdoors as wall lamps. A 220 mm version was later designed for St. Catherine’s College in England. When Arne Jacobsen used the fixture himself on stairways he always preferred the largest model. The fixture is being used around the world today in a variety of architectural contexts.
The fixture emits soft comfortable light. The glass is designed to provide a uniformly lit surface. The three-layer mouth-blown opal glass shade has a transparent edge, providing a decorative halo of light around the fixture.
Material: Mouth-blown white opal glass. Rear housing in white lacquered aluminium. The lamp is fitted with an integrated energy-saving LED light source.
Simple installation on wall or ceiling surface.
Sensor option available for some sizes
Programmable driver with stand-by and hold function
