Top 3 Design lamps by Danish LE KLINT | Selected by vosgesparis

LE KLINT CYLINDER LAMP


With a new countertop and most of the kitchen finished, my next focal point is the lighting at my home. I think a beautiful lamp really finishes off a space, just like curtains, which will be my next project! After years it was time to replace the common hardware store lamps and a few others that I was tired of. I already have several new ones, or updated old favourites and some others are on their way. My last purchase which I showed in this post, was love at first sight at imm Cologne earlier this year.
Fairs are amazing to get to know new brands or see new products up close and I am so happy to work with imm Cologne every year. At imm I also saw the products of Danish brand Le Klint for the first time in real life and made a few images and a movie for Instagram. 


LE KLINT is synonymous with folded iconic lampshades,  their story dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when a hand pleated lamp shade was folded to fit a paraffin lamp both designed by architect and master of engineering P.V. Jensen-Klint. Le Klint has been developing lamps in cooperation with architects and designers who have great respect for craftsmanship and their traditions.


LE KLINT FOLDING LAMPSHADES


The company maintained the original concept, the hand folded iconic shades take years of learning specific techniques, completing a qualifying process and mastering many different pleating forms, before one is inducted, as part of the skilled team of Pleating Technicians. Together with metal workers and wood workers the in-house design Studio of Klint developed a range of different and trendy contemporary lamps. 

I selected a few of my favourites from the collection, for even more inspiration have a look at this Design Lighting to find beautiful lamps for your home.


LE KLINT CILINDER TABLE LAMP
Cylinder by Klint Design Team
Pictured at the beginning of the post two out of three Cylinder hang lamps. Above the 'Cylinder table lamp', minimalistic with an industrial and modern touch. In my opinion it also has a Japanese feeling I really love and makes this lamp probably my favourite from the collection designed by Klint Design Team. Made of and-pleated plastic film fitted to black stained oak with steel details.

ARCDesign by Manér Studio
Kolding Design School graduates Nanna Neergaard and Marie Hesseldahl joined forces as Manér Studio and has created a brand new design concept in lighting. The LE KLINT ARC collection, consisting a table lamp, floor lamp, hanging lamp and wall lamp. Inspired by the shape of the high arches in the Grundtvigs Church in Copenhagen created by architect and designer P.V. Jensen-Klint and later completed by his son Kaare Klint. 

Pictured below the ARC table lamp. The elegant urban chic lamp is covered with a veneer oak edge that is optionally black-coloured or has a natural finish. The hood is on a small wooden base in the same color. The steel back of the hood is black or champagne coloured, depending on the variant.

Pliverre by Christian Troels
The longer I look at the different collection the harder it is to choose the last in my selection of favourite lamps by LE KLINT. I chose however the Pliverre because it is made out of milk glass making it unique within the LE KLINT collection. 

What I love even more and what caught my eye is the small brass connection between the hood and the cord. A stylish cord adjuster is included as standard which allows you to easily adjust the height of the lamp. Available in different variations from a single pendent to a chandelier with several glass shades.
