Lighting up with the baby blue AJ Eklipta ($399-491) would be completely contrary our recent red-pink color scheme, but we'll gladly be the devil's advocate on this one. Part of the AJ series for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen (think fancy, kids), the differences don't end with the color choice. A clear edging on the mounting box makes a divine halo effect that matches the heavenly pattern perfectly. We can mount this baby on a wall, ceiling, indoors or outdoors, so we can lend some soft diffused light literally anywhere we want. Talk about sky's the limit.
We can safely assume that AJ stands for Arne Jacobson, the Danish designer behind this ethereal light fixture, originally produced in 1959. His clean architectural approach to furniture and decor design was key in the development of what's called Danish Modern. This mid 20th century movement formulated iconographic mod chairs and other products, favoring teak as their material. For a product history and a sort of design biography, check out the Design Museum page devoted to Jacobsen.
