A young war veteran with PTSD lives off his passion for Danish craftsmanship and design.


''A few years ago while visiting customers with my Nordic Sales Manager Thorbjørn, we stopped at a lighting shop in Holstebro, where it wasn’t  the lighting that caught my eye but a beautiful table, made out of a rough piece of natural wood. The simplicity and everything within it brought me right back to my Nordic background. I absolutely fell in love with it and then I was told the story about how it was made by this young guy called Palle who is also an army veteran. I bought the table, I still have it and I love it every day. We have kept in contact over the last 2 years and we have found out that we share a strong common interest. Passion for craftsmanship and passion for design''

says CEO at Le Klint, Kim Weckstrøm Jensen.
