A collection of 5 lamps developed in a team with Nanna Neergaard and collaboration partner Le Klint.
Master project, June 2017 (prototypes)
“Le Klint wish to be seen as a 75-year young company”. Through a strategic design process we have analyzed and reinterpreted the design DNA and traditions of the company in a new and yet recognizable form.
The aim was to create an innovative collection of lamps targeting a younger user segment, both in appearance as well as in price.
The aesthetic consideration is based on the traditional pleated structures and the way they beautifully break up the light, whereas the lines concentrates the light and the straight sections diffuses the light. We wanted to bring these qualities into our collection in a new interpretation of pleats.
Inspired by the iconic arches of Grundtvig Memorial Church by P.V. Jensen Klint, Arc Collection got its iconic curved lines. The overall convex shape of the shade and the concave shapes of each "pleat" create a stability in the structure and is further an recognizable reference to the repetitive layers of the arches in the church.
Our full master project included a collection of 5 lamps as well as an implementation plan, that would:
1) Create a unique market position and increase the company’s visibility
2) Reach a younger customer segment in both aesthetics and in price without compromising with Le Klint’s traditions and core values
3) Be suitable for the core processes of the Le Klint production
4) Be relevant at an international level
