Design Aurélien Barbry
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.
