Christian Dell

Christian Dell (1893-1974) was born in Germany. He completed the silver forging studies at the academy and he studied at the Saxon college of arts and crafts in Weimar.

From 1922 to 1925 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.

In 1926 Christian Dell started sketching lamps, usually for the lamp factory Gebr. Kaiser & Co. The first catalogue was launched in 1936.

At that time, as well as today, The KAISER idell™-series is 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 last name, Dell. “KAISER” is a reference to the original manufacturer.

The KAISER  idell™ collection is still produced by Fritz Hansen, one of the world's leading manufacturers of exclusive design.
