LE KLINT – classic and modern lamps from Denmark since 1942
LE KLINT was founded in 1942, and is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function.
LE KLINT lamps are developed in cooperation with architects and designers who have great respect for our craftsmanship and traditions. Over the years, Designers and Architects such as Kaare Klint, Esben Klint, Mogens Koch, Poul Christiansen, and many more, have designed timeless classics.
From LE KLINT you can get the iconic paper lampshades (Model 101, 375, the Bouquet) from the Classic Collection, and more modern lamps from the Modern collection – which includes e.g. Carronade and the Pliverre model series.
LE KLINT is synonymous with lampshades. Their handfolded iconic shades take years of learning specific techniques, completing a qualifying process and mastering many different pleating forms. But the paper-shades is only a fraction of their product range procedure and the craftsmanship that lies behind each lamp. Specialist metal workers and wood workers play a big part in the magic, which has been going hand in hand with the folding process, since the beginning.
