New lamp in the CALEO family.
Taking inspiration from the CALEO ORIGINAL, the whole series was born, which in addition to the original lamp, includes a small and medium-sized cone-shaped pendant lamp. The pattern and stringing are retained in the new lamps, while the fixture and direction of the pattern is more traditional on the other two lamps in the CALEO series.
Rikke Frost had the honour of becoming the overall winner of DR1's culture show "Denmark's next classic". Le Klint helped Rikke along the way with one of the six challenges of the program, which was the task of creating a beautiful table lamp.
Viewers could follow Rikke on TV as she created a classic, but reimagined lamp. Our encounter with Rikke has resulted in an exciting collaboration.The lamp from the show will be introduced, with some adjustments, as a lamp line that has been named "CALEO". The name comes from Latin and means "to highlight", which refers to the lamps beautiful browned upstrokes, which were hand-crafted.
In addition to her participation in "Denmark's next classic", Rikke has participated in a number of exhibitions at home and abroad. She has won several design awards, including Boligmagasinet's Design Award as the reader favourite of 2012 with her rocking chair "Sway". On normal days she works in her own company, "Rikke Frost Design", and her collaborators include companies such as Tempur, Skagerak, Cane-Line, Warm Nordic and more, and now also LE KLINT.
Rikke graduated from Aarhus School of Architecture in 2000.
"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
