Amanda Taarup Betz Architect, 1978

Amanda Taarup Betz graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2005.

Her award-winning work, which has been exhibited in galleries and museums, fuses art and architecture with design.

For the recent exhibition ‘FOLD’, Amanda created a number of folded and pleated objects, one of which was an early version of the lamp 'Cassiopeia'. Through an experimental process, Amanda succeeded in creating a unique pattern of octagons in the central surface of the lamp.

A first in Le Klint’s history, the lamp has small perforations on the folded surfaces allowing rays of light to radiate from the lamp. The result is a playful display of light that is beautiful in any space.

An artistic approach to a flawless design.


"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
