Iconic Pendant Lamp with Creases
The famous model 101 by Kaare Klint - also known as the Lantern - was used in 1942 to adorn the Danish Museum of Art and Design in Copenhagen. The lantern is often described as one of the most fascinating models by Le Klint and is even today considered one of the most popular design pieces in the collection.
Traditional Craftsmanship and Latest Technology
It’s the combination of craftsmanship, modern technology and design which make the special charm of the model 101. A little bit like traditional Chinese lanterns, the plastic lamp looks like a globe made from folded paper, with the characteristic creases exuding elegant yet cosy charm.
The lantern has also been a popular prop for the silver screen on several occasions. The most famous being its appearance in the film ‘Let's Make Love’ from 1960, in which the lantern can be seen behind Marilyn Monroe in a bedroom scene while she sings the title song.
In 2007, a remake of the iconic model 101 was created as a tribute to Kaare Klint. With an XL version and subtle, smooth steel details, the original shape is indeed maintained, however is also enhanced with modern nuances.
The model 101 is available in three different sizes.
