Arne Jacobsen designed the Munkegaard fixture specifically for the Munkegaard school constructed in northern Copenhagen in 1951-58.
The school ceilings could accommodate a 100mm deep hole, but the fixture height could not be under 130mm. Arne Jacobsen solved the problem of the protruding edge by designing the transition from ceiling to fixture edge as an illuminated slit, thus effacing the daylight shadows and the contrast between the fixture’s own light and shadow.
