ETTAN, JOKER and KANALJ were three models of lamp with one thing in common: they were not designed by IKEA, but were models acquired from Gnosjö Konstsmide in Småland.
JOKER was a table lamp with a cylindrical lacquered metal shade. At the top of the shade was a small metal ring that would make the lamp easy to move around. According to the 1969 IKEA catalogue, JOKER was a lamp with “a fun new shape for a young, unconventional setting”. This youthful lamp was sold in three colours: white, red and blue. JOKER also came as a floor lamp called KANALJ.
ETTAN too originated from Gnosjö Konstsmide. It was an adjustable desk lamp with a metal post and base. ETTAN also came in a floor lamp version, called TVÅAN. Both versions came lacquered in white or blue.
