TIP TOP


Jørgen Gammelgaard got the idea for the multi-shade TIP TOP lamp while working for UN at Samoa. After returning to Denmark he developed the single shade Tip Tops to a perfect example of cool, Scandinavian minimalism. This design is characterized by its unique anti-glare reflector inside the lamp, by the small elegant space between the shade and the socket house and last but not least by the attention to detail that extends down to the precise execution of each component.

Jørgen Gammelgaard (1938-1991)


Jørgen Gammelgaard belonged to a generation of skilful furniture designers who all learned their craft in the time-honoured Danish apprenticeship tradition. Following his apprenticeship Gammelgaard studied with Grete Jalk, and then became a student at the Danish Royal Academy’s furniture school, working under Poul Kjærholm and Ole Wanscher. Gammelgaard later worked in the design studios of Arne Jacobsen, Mogens Koch, Steen Eiler Rasmussen and Jørgen Bo. During this period he also did consultancy work for the UN on Samoa, where he designed his famous Tip-Top lampshade. Some of Gammelgaard’s most successful furniture designs include the Crestrail and Skagen chairs. Jørgen Gammelgaard was the first designer to receive the annual awards from both the Danish Design Council and The Council for Arts and Crafts. In 1987 he was appointed Professor of furniture design at the Danish Royal Academy.
