With the Bellevue Lamp, Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen embodies the minimalism of the Modernist Movement with the functionalism of Bauhaus. Viewed as the driving force behind Danish Modernism, Jacobsen’s preference for graceful lines and simple, organic forms are readily recognisable in the Bellevue Lamp. The re-launch of this iconic lamp involves a return to the original Bellevue shape in three styles: the floor lamp, desk lamp and wall lamp. To enhance their appeal in a contemporary setting are new colours and a mix of materials: satin polished brass, black with brass, anthracite with brace and versions mixing ivory or grey beige with brass.

“The program does not allow for it. I simply do not think that I have the talent for it...no, I am always grateful for the program, this is what evokes the solutions that I arrive at.” Arne Jacobsen
Arne Jacobsen's cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. However, it was the Ant designed in 1952 - succeeded by the 3107 series - that propelled his and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history.
Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. At the end of the 50s Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for that project the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300.
Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. While the significance of Arne Jacobsen's buildings was less appreciated, his furniture and other design work have become national and international heritage.
