The Kaiser Idell T Luxury Table Lamp a real classic

The famous Kaiser Idell T luxury lamp is characterised by Christian Dell’s elegant use of the characteristic basic forms of modernism: sphere, circle, cylinder. Even today, the KAISER idell is a symbol of noble Bauhaus design, exquisite choice of materials and precise technology. Introduced in 1936, the 6631-T Luxus table lamp has become the top model in the KAISER idell™ series and exemplifies Dell’s graceful, uncluttered style. Christian Dell was born in Offenbach am Main in Hesse. From 1907 to 1911, Dell completed an apprenticeship as a silversmith in Hanau and attended the drawing academy there. From 1912 to 1913 he studied at the Saxon School of Applied Arts in Weimar under Henry van de Velde. From 1922 to 1925 he worked as a foreman in the metal workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar. In 1926 Dell took over as head of the metal workshop at the Frankfurt art school. Dell’s design style was already extremely innovative at that time and thus trend-setting for the future. From 1926 onwards, Christian Dell designed lamps, often for the lamp factory Gebr. Kaiser & Co*. In the first idell catalogue, published in 1936, the table lamp 6631 Luxus can be seen for the first time. Within a short period of time, this lamp became the top model of the KAISER idell™ series – then as now a symbol of noble German design, exquisite choice of materials and precise craftsmanship as well as mechanical processing.
