"I have always been fascinated with light in its many forms. I am constantly amazed at the ability of pure natural light´s power, to enhance or deplete nature´s beauty. On occasion, I have questioned, how can it get us to simultaneously, think about colour texture and shade, while interacting with our senses and affecting our moods."
Kim Weckstrøm Jensen, CEO
The story of LE KLINT 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. A team of friends and family members worked hard to refine this new shade and in return, received one as a gift of gratitude for their time. 1943 was the year the Klint family handicraft became a real business led by Tage Klint. This allowed Tage to pioneer a new decisive detail to the lampshadesin the shape of an elastic collar.
LE KLINT is known throughout most parts of the world for its unique craftsmanship and over the years has been awarded many honors including "Purveyors to the Royal Danish Court" in 2003.
We do our best to keep the lighting range continuously developed and modernized in accordance with today´s technologies. We have always been happy to collaborate with architects and designers, who have great respect for our traditions and craftsmanship.
Today, we embrace the ingenuity of talented young designers who make a design statement that is cohesive with our DNA. This is why the history of LE KLINT is not just another story of a business but a story of drive and determination that keeps LE KLINT current and even ahead of the constant changes in trends.
