These hand-folded sculptural pendant shades were designed by architect Poul Christiansen between 1969 and 1978 and have been in continuous production by the Danish company Le Klint. The material is a color-stabilized white PVC which is completely washable and anti-static. Le Klint 169 is enjoying renewed popularity along with other design icons of the 1960's.

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 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. 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 dexterous, 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.

Le Klint 169 Pendant is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning lamp - exceeds expecations I have it hanging over the table in my "transitional style" kitchen's atrium. It's the light I leave on throughout the evening - it is just so beautiful to look at. My electrician complained about installation, but it really didn't take him long. We were missing a small piece critical for hanging, but LeKlint sent it in a timely manner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light fixture! I bought this light for my dining room in my mid century modern home. Looks great, perfect size for my 48" round dining room table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Striking modern fixture lends character to your space. I installed this pendant as the central light fixture in a very small (9'x9') bedroom, and the effect is simply striking. The shape is modern but soft, and with a dimmer gives off a warm glow even using CFLs. As I had expected, the single bulb is not sufficient to light even a small space alone, so do not count on this being the sole light source for your space. The plastic does attract dust, but it can be easily cleaned with the right vacuum attachment. YLighting's price was the best anywhere, period, and I received the light a mere two days later with standard shipping — will definitely return for next light purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine craftsmanship, beautiful design This chandelier is basically huge Origami - it's a single piece of folded shiny material that is joined on one easily missed seam. Two metal loops keep the folded material in place at the top and bottom, as well as clamp it on to a bulb (hidden inside the chandelier) on a white cord that hangs down from the ceiling. The ceiling mount is a white, smooth cone shape, about the size of a wide waffle cone. The ceiling mount is basic and seemingly designed not to distract from the centerpiece it's holding up. All told the lamp probably weighs 5 lbs. You could be put off by the fact that you are basically buying a sheet of (expertly shaped) plastic, which is then hung off a inexpensive looking cord and bulb. But don't be - it's beautifully crafted, architecturally captivating, and definitely a draw for the eye. It's a show-piece that would fit well in a modern home, without breaking the bank. Note, it doesn't come with installation instructions, which I found to be a pretty annoying oversight. The installation is relatively straightforward, however, and any electrician or moderately experienced/very handy home-owner will be comfortable with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected. Really pleased with the Le Klint Pendant 169. I purchased two of them for a large sunroom. They are very lightweight and were extremely easy to install (even though there were no directions). The quality of the product is better than I expected; I was a little concerned about how the folded plastic would look but they are very cool and contemporary. They really work for us and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to punch up a room with a contemporary fixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This light added a much needed dimension to our son's bedroom. And he loves it too! There were no installation instructions included but found some on-line and it was easy.
