In 1945, Mogens Koch simplified the myriad of cross-pleats in Kaare Klint's Fruit lamp to create this more stringent lampshade design.

The oval shape gives the lamp a more sedate expression, closely allied to traditional Japanese paper lamps. The enclosed shape makes it suitable for hanging from a high ceiling.


Mogens Koch

Mogens Koch graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, became associate professor in 1940 and worked as a professor of architecture from 1950 to 1968. Co-operated with Kaare Klint from 1925 until 1930.

Mogens Koch was known for his classic designs, not only in the field of furniture, but also in architecture, textiles, silverware, and typography.


"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
