KAISER idell lamps

The first KAISER Idell lamp, the KAISER Idell 6631 table lamp, was launched back in 1936 by the German manufacturer Gebr. Kaiser & Co. Designed by Christian Dell, the lamp has served as a noble system of technical precision and exquisite choice of materials ever since.

The KAISER Idell collection has experienced a resurgence of popularity in connection with the Scandinavian style that has made it modern to decorate your home with significant design classic with history. Just look at the KAISER Idell Table Lamp 6631T Luxus : the special edition that was launched in 2019, in connection with the 100-year anniversary of the Bauhaus movement. The new version of the timeless table lamp in matt black and brass details compliments the Nordic style of design that continues to dominate on a global scale particularly well.

Christian Dell

The German silversmith,   Christian Dell , designed the lamp. Based on an innovative and revolutionary invention – the ball joint! The concept was quickly patented, so the technique was only available to Gebr. Kaiser & Co. These ball joints that allow you to loosen different parts and adjust the lamp to suit your needs are still in use today.

Christian Dell was one of the key figures in establishing the Bauhaus style. From 1922 to 1925, he was in charge of the Bauhaus metal workshop that developed innovative design. When he designed the KAISER Idell table lamp in 1926, he changed the history of design, and the popular lamp became a symbol for the Bauhaus period. The lamp was given the KAISER name by the factory where it was made, whereas Idell is a combination of the designer’s last name and the word “idea”.

KAISER Idell and Fritz Hansen


In 2010, the furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen bought the manufacturing rights for the KAISER Idell lamps. The design-related values of the lamp were closely aligned with those of Fritz Hansen’s furniture, so it seemed like a natural addition to the furniture collection. As can be seen in the selection below, the KAISER Idell collection has since been expanded to include floor lamps, wall lamps, and pendants.
