« The Lantern » 101 pendant

design Kaare Klint, 1944

"The Lantern" 101 pendant is an iconic product of Le Klint created in 1944. It is the most detailed of the Le Klint lamps. Designed by Danish architect and designer Kaare Klint, the Lantern lampshade diffuses a multidirectional and non glaring light.

Unique and fascinating, it is the perfect combination of design, technology and craftsmanship. The enclosed shape makes it perfect for hanging at height as it shades the light source from all angles.

It was renewed in 2007 by Danish designer Kim Weckstrom Jensen, who made larger versions with PVC foil shades.

Kaare Klint

Kaare Klint was born in 1888 in Denmark. He studied painting at the Polytechnic School in Frederiksberg, then architecture and design at the Copenhagen Technical School. In 1920, Klint founded his own office of design and architecture. Four years later, he created the furniture department of the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen.

Alongside his career as an architect and designer, Kaare Klint taught at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Klint has systematized a human-centered approach that has been the bedrock of Danish modernism. He set standards around construction and created some form of storage rationalization. Without him the Danish design world would not be what it is today.

Kaare Klint's creations are recognizable by their simple curves, their clean lines and their noble materials like Cuban mahogany. The "Safari" armchair is one of his key pieces. He has inspired many designers around the world.
