The most famous work of Bauhaus designer Christian Dell, the Kaiser Idell lighting range is a classic of 20th century design and a lasting symbol of the Bauhaus heritage.
Kaiser Idell lamps, designed by Dell (1893-1974) in the 1930s, were produced by Gebr. Kaiser & Co in Neheim-Hüsten, Germany. The range includes floor lamps, articulated wall scissors "scissors" and desk lamps, often with metallic structures lacquered in black or bold primary colors. The collection was first promoted in Kaiser Leuchten catalog in 1936, but the models have been in production since 1933-4. In the rest of the 1930s and until the outbreak of World War II, up to 700 copies were produced annually. The early edition lamps in the collection were printed with "Original JDell", and later versions made in the mid to late 1930s were marked "Original Kaiser Idell", with the logo forming a circle around the head of the lamp.
The history of the Kaiser Leuchten factory took a darker turn during the war, when the factory was destroyed and many workers who were forcibly employed there were killed in 1943. After the war, the factory was rebuilt and the lamps were put back into production. it remained so until the late 1970s, when the company was acquired by Thorn Lighting Group.
Today, vintage Kaiser Idell lamps remain in high demand on the market.
