TODAY THE COPENHAGEN STREET LIGHTS CAME ON AT 16:18 – the days are getting really short!
Illuminating the capital is the design classic “Copenhagen Lamp” …designed in the early 1970’s at the Copenhagen Stadsarkitekts Studio ( Copenhagen Municipal Architecture Department). The electrical giant, Philips, took the design and put it into mass production, propelling the lamp into every street in Copenhagen.
The lamp is now being replaced by newer energy saving versions…but originals are still in abundance.
The Copenhagen Lamp measures 46 cm. in diameter and 33 cm. in height.
