The Danish architect Bodil Kjær’s Cross-Plex™ lamp first saw the light of day in 1961. This lamp – shaped like a cross and moulded in plexiglass, hence the name – consists of only the very necessary. Cross-Plex is therefore a pure reflection of the architect and designer’s characteristic clean-cut and straight lines. Seen from its profile, the table lamp almost looks like a miniature building with the opal shade representing an illuminated roof.
