Conditions in Denmark in the late 1940s were suited to successful innovation in design with an unprecedented support for freedom of individual expression.

Danish style table lamps can often be distinguished by the wood craftsmanship that is used. The Danish style conforms a practical style and the principle that the design should conform to the comfort of the user. The design is predominantly smooth and unadorned.
