HISTORY OF A DESIGN ICON Christian Dell was a German silversmith and designer. From 1922-25 he worked as a foreman of the metal workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar where he was the man behind a highly innovative and pioneering style of design. The Bauhaus occupies a place of its own in the history of the 20th century culture; architecture, design, art and new media. As one of the first colleges of design, it brought together a number of the most outstanding contemporary architects and artists. Beginning in 1926 Dell sketched lights, often for the lamp factory Gebr. Kaiser & Co. The first catalogue was launched in 1936 in which the table lamp model 6631 Luxus appeared for the first time. This lamp soon became the undisputed top model of the KAISER idell™-serie – then, as well as today, the symbol of noble Germanic design, exquisite choice of materials and precise engineering. The term “idell” is a reference to the word idea and his lastname, Dell. “Kaiser” is a reference to the original manufacturer – KAISER idell. Christian Dell, 1893-1974
The asymmetrical design of the lampshade is a characteristic feature of the 6631 Luxus and is hand-painted. The harmonious shape of the arm is a visual extension of the lampshades silhouette. The brass arm has been carefully polished and has silver-soldered swivel joints at both ends. Like the brass arm, all the other components of this lamp have a crome-plated finish. BAUHAUS, Weimar

Each lamp comes with a certificate of authenticity as well as a unique ID number. Originally, the swivel joint that links the lampshade to the arm was a special feature of KAISER idell series. A revolutionary feature at the time, the swivel joint enabled the lamp to be positioned in countless ways – a mark of KAISER idell’s true authenticity. The dome mounted above the reflector is embossed with the words ”ORIGINAL KAISER-idell“. Simple yet beautifully designed, the pivot joint fixes the arm in place by means of a powerful and elegant wing nut. The heavy, round base of the lamp is a decorative element in itself with a polished, cromeplated brass ring around its circumference.
