The story of LE KLINT dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when a hand pleated lamp shade was folded to fit a paraffin lamp both designed by architect and master of engineering P.V.Jensen-Klint.
The pleated lamp shade in paper and plastic is still at the very heart of 75-year-old design company LE KLINT. To this day the craftsmanship of the crossed pleated lamp shade is unique and a handicraft that is only mastered at LE KLINT’s original Pleating Studio in Odense, Denmark.
LE KLINT is known throughout most parts of the world for its unique craftsmanship and over the years has been awarded many honors including "Purveyors to the Royal Danish Court" in 2003. LE KLINT has helped to embelish the Royal Danish Court, the Royal yacht "Dannebrog", the Royal railway carriage and the Royal reception rooms at Copenhagen Airport, with beautiful timeless lighting from LE KLINT’s extensive catalogue.
