The story of LE KLINT dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when a hand pleated lamp shade was folded to fit a paraffin lamp designed by architect and master of engineering P.V. Jensen-Klint. A team of friends and family members worked hard to refine this new shade and in return, received one as a gift of gratitude for their time. 1943 was the year the Klint family handicraft then became a real business, led by Tage Klint. This allowed Tage to pioneer a new decisive detail to the lampshades, in the shape of an elastic collar.
LE KLINT is known throughout most parts of the world for its unique craftsmanship and over the years has been awarded many honours, including "Purveyors to the Royal Danish Court" in 2003.
Today, LE KLINT embraces the ingenuity of talented young designers who make a design statement that is cohesive with its DNA. This is why the history of LE KLINT is not just business story, but a story of drive and determination that keeps it current, and even ahead, of the constant changes in trends.
