Design by Kaare Klint, 1944
Made in Denmark by Le Klint
Kaare Klint's Pendant 101, originally known as "The Lantern," is one of the most intricately detailed lamps in the Le Klint collection. Featuring an enclosed, cross pleated structure, it represents the perfect combination of design, technology and craftsmanship. Its shade conceals the light source from all angles, making it suitable for hanging at any height. Constructed of hand folded paper coated with white plastic, the Le Klint Pendant 101 is ideal for providing warm, ambient illumination to any modern space. Offered in three sizes.
Pendant 101 was was launched as far back as 1944. However, in 1942, it was first revealed to the public when the lamp was used to decorate The Danish Museum of Decorative Art, which is now known as The Danish Museum of Art and Design located in Copenhagen.
The unique concept and the enterprising Klint family would not have been enough on their own, because without one particular resource, namely all the skilled pleaters at Le Klint, it would have been impossible to put the concept into actual production. Assiduous, precise and highly dextrous, they have turned the designers' proposals and models into beautiful shades over the years. The pleaters are still there today because no machine can ever replace craftsmanship.

Modern Danish Lighting from Le Klint
P.V. Jensen Klint was an architect and also a far-sighted and visionary gentleman. He had designed a stoneware oil lamp which needed an appropriate shade. What does the gifted and curious designer do? He invents a unique product, a lamp shade with folding across the pleats.
P.V. Jensen was a Bachelor of Engineering, an architect and a painter. One must accentuate two achievements which still remain after his death. One is the Grundtvig Church in Copenhagen and the other is the cross pleated lamp shade which 40 years later went into production under the company name of LE KLINT.
Tage Klint, son of P.V. Jensen Klint, was the creative entrepreneur who in 1943 chose to turn the family's artistically folded lamp shades into a regular business. He also added a crucial detail to the original shades; the unique collar at the top of the lamp, designed to fix the shade to the metal stand. Furthermore, he designed a number of lamps which have all been a part of LE KLINT's assortment.
In 1953 his son, Jan Klint, took over the company. As a business man, he was years ahead of his time. In order to secure his employees, he created a fund which has since 1972 been in charge of the company LE KLINT. In addition, the fund supports former employees, designers and architects.
