The history - back to
the beginning of the 20th century.


LE KLINT lamps are developed in cooperation with architects and designers who have great respect for our craftsmanship and traditions. We do our best to continually modernize our designs in accordance with today’s technologies and changing trends. The story of LE KLINT is not merely the story of a company, but also a reflection of the history of design and technology for more than one hundred years – a century during which LE KLINT has evolved into today’s modern manufacturing company without compromising its integrity.


Our main office and production are located in Odense, Denmark. Good craftsmanship and in-house production are two major cornerstones of LE KLINT as a brand. Our world renowned quality lighting is the result of techniques and tradition that has been handed down from generation to generation, which are still being carried out today by a broad team of highly skilled workers.

LE KLINT is synonymous with lampshades. Our handfolded iconic shades take years of learning specific techniques, completing a qualifying process and mastering many different pleating forms, before one is inducted, as part of the skilled team of Pleating Technicians. This, however, is only a fraction of our product range procedure and the craftsmanship that lies behind each lamp. Specialist metal workers and wood workers play a big part in the magic, which has been going hand in hand with the folding process, since the beginning.
