On the occasion of our 80th anniversary, Aurélien Barbry has designed a beautiful new lamp series LK80, Model 328.
- Made in Denmark .. of course
Behind the design of LK 80 is the French designer Aurélien Barbry, who has previously designed for Le Klint. The new Le Klint series is crafted in oak with brass details and inspired by the classic Le Klint lamp with a pleated shade.
With a sophisticated construction, the lamp is simple but with a little twist at the base. The stand is securely held in place with an elegant brass detail, giving the design a strong contemporary expression. The design process of figuring out
how to place the cord for the lamp within the stand, so it had the right thickness, was challenging and took many months. But the result is a lamp series with a strong contemporary expression, with the potential to become a new Le Klint icon.
Designer Aurélien Barbry talks about the new design:
"It was definitely Le Klint as a design brand that inspired me when I designed the series. Their history, knowledge, focus on details, and local production in Odense. Their 'savoir faire.' I wanted to design a stand that supports and celebrates the beautiful handmade shade, so the stand had to be functional and discreet at the same time. The special brass detail at the base of the stand, where the cord elegantly goes in and out, makes it stand out and be entirely its own."
