The KAISER idell™ collection consists of several different variants: Table-, wall and floor lamps as well as a pendant. KAISER idell™ is original Bauhaus design, and the series is based on a world-patented swivel joint and the characteristic dome embossed with “ORIGINAL KAISER-idell”. The term “idell” is a play on the word “idea” and designer Christian Dell’s last name. “KAISER” is a reference to the original manufacturer Gebr. Kaiser & Co. It is from the contraction of these terms the KAISER idell™ series got its name.

Fritz Hansen Kaiser Idell 6718 Wall Lamp Designed by:
- Christian Dell , 1931
Germany, 1893 - 1974
Christian Dell was a German silversmith and designer. From 1922-25 he worked as a foreman of the metal workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar where he was the man behind a highly innovative and pioneering style of design. The Bauhaus occupies a place of its own in the history of the 20th century culture; architecture, design, art and new media. As one of the first colleges of design, it brought together a number of the most outstanding contemporary architects and artists.
Beginning in 1926 Dell sketched lights, often for the lamp factory Gebr. Kaiser & Co. The first catalogue was launched in 1936 in which the table lamp model 6631 Luxus appeared for the first time. This lamp soon became the undisputed top model of the KAISER idell™-serie – then, as well as today, the symbol of noble Germanic design, exquisite choice of materials and precise engineering. The term “idell” is a reference to the word idea and his lastname, Dell. “Kaiser” is a reference to the original manufacturer – KAISER idell.
