Design: Philip Bro Ludvigsen
Soleil is French for sun and this latest design, exudes the same characteristics of distributing light from its centre, as our main star in our solar system. Philip Bro Ludvigsen has worked even further with Le Klint traditional hand pleated lampshades, to give us a stunning design in a beautiful combination of aluminium, flax, oak, wood and paper.
This understated design, results in a quiet yet balanced look, which most people will be able to immediately associate with the minimalism of Nordic living – where less is more
”The desire to create lighting is also the desire to create design that is poetic. Something special happens during the design process when you work with lighting. At some point, you switch on the light, and what happens next is slightly unforeseeable. If it works, it’s poetic. You generate instinctive feelings. That appeals to me.”
Phillip made a statement in 2019 "Danske lamper - 1920 til nu” (Danish Lamps - 1920 to present day) that still rings through today
Soleil is made in Odense Denmark where Le Klint focuses on using sustainable materials to produce this and other pendant lighting. The hand-folded lampshade is made from UV-resistant FCS-certified paper, natural flax cord and attractive wooden details made from a choice of untreated light oak or smoked oak.
This extremely slimline design allows Soleil the flexibility to be used in a variety of interior settings. Over a dining table at home, in a restaurant or a business meeting room. The strong LEDlight source combined with the pleated lampshade prevents glare when in use, while ensuring there is still plenty of light.
