Originally designed in 1962 for the St Catherine’s College, the AJ Oxford was created by Arne Jacobsen as a part of his modernist gesamtkunstwerk, which contrasts with the surrounding classical buildings of Oxford University. It’s graphic lines and monochrome colour palette, make the AJ Oxford perfect for a modern home.
A design that transcends time and place, that’s what makes it an icon.
Specifically designed by Arne Jacobsen for St Catherine’s College in Oxford, the AJ Oxford Table Lamp reflects the modernist style of the building, which contrasts with the classical architecture of Oxford University.
When you take a closer look at the AJ Oxford, you begin to notice little details. For example, the brass screw that holds the shade in place, as well as the elegant way the cable is channelled through the stem of the lamp.
