The new lamps series ARC, is designed by Nanna Neergaard and Marie Hesseldahl from Manér Studio. The result is an elegant urban chic designer lighting collection with a simple yet understated sophistication that incorporates the vast curves and ceiling arches as a reference to LE KLINT‘s traditional pleating techniques.
ARC is a uniquely modern collection inspired by the imposing architecture and the industrial beauty and ingenuity of the regal interior of The Grundtvig Church in Copenhagen created by leading architect and designer P.V. Jensen-Klint.
The designers have added a modern twist by combining the white pleated shades with black colored oak elements. The ARC shades are made from the same material as the hand pleated shades, and a visible band in veneer holds the two identical shades together. Encompassing the right amount of finesse and functionality to represent the lighting journey of LE KLINT, the ARC collection is the perfect series to kick-start our 75th anniversary year.
Nanna Neergaard and Marie Hesseldahl explain about their inspiration and thoughts: “We wanted to work with the heritage of LE KLINT and introduce a new feature to the old technique to attract a new and young audience. We love the way the pleated shades of a LE KLINT lamp breaks the light bringing a both diffused and concentrated light to a room, and we wanted to give our design a reinterpretation of the classic pleated lamp shade but with a doubly curved and soft shape,” they explain.
