In 1943, Tage Klint established the first LE KLINT shop in Copenhagen, turning the family handicraft of pleating paper lampshades into a real business. Today, as a modern manufacturing company and one of Denmark’s most recognized brands, LE KLINT continues the tradition of working only with the preeminent Danish designers of the day in the development of their lamps.
The design is experimenting with LE KLINT’s traditional double cross-pleating, which in this lampshade is placed in a horizontal and zigzag fashion around the minimalist, Ponti inspired wooden frame. A romantic kinship with traditional wooden-clad beehives boxes has given rise to the name: BEE HIVE.
BEE HIVE, with its simplicity and refinement, combines Japanese and Danish design tradition in a beautiful and timeless look, which can be used in almost any setting where light plays a central role.
Snowdrop Table & Floor Lamp
Relaxing with Snowdrop
For the design of Snowdrop, HarritSorensen joined forces with Kim Samson, another fellow alumni from the Danish Design School. While HarritSorensen focused their attentions on the functional aspect of the final product, Kim Samson worked to ensure the feminine aesthetic in the lines of the lamp.
