Pleated paper luminaries, entirely handmade, Scandinavian design
It all began at the beginning of the 20th century with designer P.V. Jensen Klint's creation of a pleated paper lampshade to decorate a paraffin lamp. The Klint family, under the aegis of Tage Klint, founded the Danish brand in 1943 and developed an exclusive quality of paper to create their famous handmade lampshades. As the collections developed, the brand became known throughout the world, with iconic models still published today in the Masterpieces collection, until it was recognised as the official supplier of the Danish Royal Crown in 2003. The Klint has always known how to combine its craftsmanship with the development of new technologies and offer collections of modern and high quality lighting. Today, the catalogue is enriched with models in wood, metal, glass and polypropylene, developed in collaboration with great designers and benefiting from the high quality of materials and workmanship, so attentive to detail, of the Danish house.
