Arne Jacobsen designed the Munkegård fixture for Munkegårdsskolen in Søborg, Denmark in 1955. This was the first recessed fixture which illuminated the ceiling, thereby evening out light contrasts.The fixture had a discreet presence in the room, in line with Arne Jacobsen´s architectural approach.

 

The fixture looks like a disc hovering just below the ceiling – an impression primarily created by the illuminated opening and the suspended placement of the fixture below the mounting surface. The 2-layer glass/acrylic shade ensures uniform, gently diffuse lighting. This fixture gives the room the illusion of extra height.
