German silversmith Christian Dell was a metalworking teacher at the Bauhaus from 1922–25. Collaborating with modernist luminaries László Moholy-Nagy and Marianne Brandt, Dell helped shape the Bauhaus approach to industrial lighting. He started designing lighting for various companies in 1926, including Gebrüder Kaiser & Co. , the one that produced the first lamp in the Kaiser-idell Collection (1931). With the first part of the name being for the factory that produced it, the latter is an amalgam of Dell and idee , the German word for “idea. ” Brought back into production by Fritz Hansen in 2011, the collection is crafted to the designer’s original specifications, including his worldwide-patented swivel joint for shade adjustability – revolutionary in 1931. Bulb (not included): 4" or shorter LED; E26 base; 25W max. UL Listed. Made in Denmark. Adjustable stem tilts forward and back to three positions.
