Poul Christiansen

Between 1969 and 1987 Poul Christiansen brought innovative and exciting dimensions to Le Klint's lamp shades. Prior to his involvement the shades had been folded in pleats and in straight lines across the pleats. Poul Christiansen discovered that folding in mathematical curves gave the lamp shades beautiful and unique sculptural shapes.

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.

Indispensable Pleaters

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from compliments galore We hung the larger size of this lamp a little bit low over a four-person Eames dining table & chairs in front of floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of our mid-century house. It's the first thing people comment on when they come to the door. We threw a party with fellow architecture fans, and people examined the lamp closely with good things to say. I will note, you'll need compressed air with a straw nozzle to blow little dead bugs out of the creases inside. But, that's easy enough, and you can get a can at any office supply store -- it's used to clean keyboards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutley Love It This is the 4th Le Klint pendant I have purchased for various homes I have owned over the past several years... each one is unique and beautiful... this one is no exception! Many people have said they have seen "similar" lights at a retail chain store... "similar" is an understatement. Those lights are cheap knockoffs... this is the real thing and well worth the price. It looks gorgeous turned off (looks like a sculpture) and is even more gorgeous illuminated (throws an incredible light effect on the ceiling). Buy it, you'll love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, subtle design Our Pendant 171 has been a welcome addition to our dining room. We chose the middle size, which has been perfect for our space (roughly 12 feet by 12 feet dining room), though we hung it fairly close to the ceiling (18 inches). The lamp is wonderful - very interesting and architectural, but it doesn't dominate the space. It also puts out a nice amount of light for the room, which we were a little concerned about. The delivery and service (and price) were exceptional.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Elegant fixture, lightweight and excellent service with fast delivery! We needed a nice fixture for our step-up dining area in a 950 SF 1BR apt. We wanted a pendant that would be dimmable and which would diffuse soft light in front of a somewhat glossy dark brown rear accent wall. This pendant fit the bill perfectly. The phone rep at Ylighting patiently answered all our questions regarding which size to buy (we chose the largest since the DR is open to the LR), what dimmer switch to use and CFLs vs. incandescent bulbs. The pendant itself arrived very quickly and was packed extremely well. Our first impression was how light weight it was (featherweight, to be exact). I was expecting a more glass-like finish and chandelier weight, but this only gave an impression of elegant airiness rather than any aura of flimsiness or of a cheap fixture. Overall we were very happy with our purchase and felt the money was well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our space We needed to modernize our historic home a bit, and replace the hideous (and all too small) chandelier with shades that the previous owners had. Since we have 10-foot ceilings, we appreciated having enough cord length to play around with. This particular design does not seem to trap dust and bugs (we've had it for about three months now) the way the other, more popular Le Klint pendant seems to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great but lacked instructions. We purchased this light for our dining room. The light didn't come with any directions. It also came with some "extra" pieces that I could not figure out how to use. The light installed easily once I chose what pieces not to use. The directions would have been especially useful in determing what use these pieces have. Anyway the light seems fine without them and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy The pendant light was not difficult for the electrician to install and I am happy that it does not require a fancy bulb. While it arrived very carefully packed--boxes, layers of plastic, etc.--it is not all that delicate in handling. In my case it is over a round dining table in an informal dining room. It looks very well and adds some welcome texture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled We ordered this light as a dining room chandelier for our 50s modern-style house. I was worried that it wouldn't be enough light, but it ended up being plenty. My husband was very skeptical after seeing the picture online, but he really likes the look now that it's hanging. The light is so stylish and was the perfect finishing touch to the space.
