The Le Klint Story
Tage Klint pioneered the family handicraft business in Denmark in 1943, inspired by P.F. Jensen-Klint's invention of the pleated lampshade. Tage added the elastic collar to the top of the shade to better keep the pleats from unraveling. The business was passed down to Tage's son, Jan Klint, in 1953, who still runs the company.Read More
Why We Love Le Klint Lighting
Best known for pleated, stabilized PVC pendants designed by Poul Christiansen (introduced between 1969-1987), Le Klint lighting is distinguished by cool mid-century modern lighting designs that have the ability to make a statement anywhere they are placed. The Le Klint pendants are hand-folded in mathematical curves, creating sharp looks that are juxtaposed by waves of warm light. They offer movement and sculpture to contemporary spaces, and they're washable and anti-static, too. And after finding success with its line of pendant lighting, Le Klint has now expanded with wall lights and table lamps.
Fun Facts About Le Klint
In 1971, Jan Klint set up a foundation to ensure the future of Le Klint employees, still in effect today. In the US, Le Klint ceiling lights have found their home in Pink Berry frozen yogurt restaurants.
