Carl J.Jucker (1902 – 1997) was a Swiss designer and metal worker.
Many of his lamp models were made for the Haus am Horn interior of 1923, of which the Glaslampe was the most well-known. This model was perfected by Wilhelm Wagenfeld for serial production at the Bauhaus by Jucker. With Marcel Breuer, Jucker collaborated on the production of tubular steel furniture. He returned to Switzerland in 1923 and became a designer at Jetzler’s silverware factory in Schaffhausen. He taught in Zürich and Schaffhausen and was a member of the Lacustre yacht design team.

Using simple geometric shapes-circular base, cylindrical shaft, and spherical shade-Wagenfeld and Jucker achieved “both maximum simplicity and, in terms of time and materials, greatest economy.”
