Esben Klint lamp (UK plug)

By Lyngby Porcelain


  • Description

    The Lyngby vase from Lyngby Porcelæn and the folded lampshades from LE KLINT belong among the classics of Danish design history. Both designs evolved from the functionalism of the 1940s and with their razor-sharp lines and white signature colour there’s both a spiritual and physical kinship between the two.
    Lyngby Porcelæn and Le Klint briefly collaborated in the late 1950s to produce a table lamp that combined the popular relief of the Lyngby vase and the proud Klint family handcraft. The designs were not
    distributed widely, so not many of them exist. If you are (very very) lucky, you might be able to find some of the original lamps at flea markets – they all had “Exclusively made” printed in the bottom. Now, in close agreement with the family of Esben Klint, Lyngby Porcelæn re-launches the table lamp that came from this unique collaboration. True to the original design by Esben Klint, with original LE KLINT screen. Just like in the 60’s.

    LE KLINT dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when a hand pleated lamp shade was folded to fit a paraffin lamp - both of which was designed by architect and master of engineering P.V. Jensen-Klint. A team of friends and family members including the sons Tage and Kaare Klint worked hard to refine this new shade and in 1943 entrepreneur Tage Klint turned the Klint family handcraft into a business.

    Esben Klint

    Esben Klint was the son of Kaare Klint and, despite a broad education received at some of the leading architects of the time, he was very clearly his father's disciple. The lineage is especially expressed clearly in the designs he produced for church inventory and furniture he designed with Børge Mogensen.
    He has also designed a number of lamps for LE KLINT. Many of these are still part of the LE KLINT product range.
