This lamp is popularly known as the Donut lamp, When she created the lamp in 2007, designer Lise Navne was in fact inspired by the acutely rounded shape of its edible counterpart.
Currently available in two sizes. The lamp is completely enclosed at top and base by a polished steel plate, the simplicity of which is in perfect contrast to the very complex pleating of the lampshade itself.
Lise Navne is a qualified product designer from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. She graduated in 2006.
Lise Navne's debut for LE KLINT came in 2007 with the Donut pendant. Taking classic LE KLINT cross-pleating to an extreme, Lise has created a lamp that combines classical LE KLINT craftsmanship and traditions with innovative design.
One cannot help but feel a certain fascination when considering the depth and richness of Kaare Klint’s legacy : More than sixty years have passed since Kaare Klint created the popular cross-pleated Fruit lamp and now a talented young designer picks up the exact pleating technique and creates a modern lamp with a design expression entirely of its own.
"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
