Arne Vodder
Arne Vodder

Arne Vodder was a leading light of what might be called the “second generation” of forward-thinking 20th-century Danish furniture designers — those who, following in the footsteps of Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl and others, first applied the skills, traditions and philosophical tenets of Danish craftsmanship to a modern furniture idiom.

     As a graduate student in architecture trained by Finn Juhl, Vodder made his mark in the 1960s, when modern design had gained wide acceptance, particularly in the business world. Accordingly, many of Vodder’s chairs are quiet in form — projecting an air of sturdiness and strength, rather than avant-garde styling.

     Vodder’s aesthetic flair was very pronounced in his cabinets and storage pieces — sideboards, bookcases, credenzas and buffets. In such pieces, Vodder liked to play with asymmetry. His bookcases often have a seemingly random array of variously sized shelves and nooks. A typical Vodder sideboard might have four sections, each different in purpose and look: an open stack of vertical shelves, and other cupboards covered with sliding panels in contrasting colored laminates and wood veneers. As you will see from the works on these pages, Arne Vodder had a sense of what kind of design was appropriate for which space: sobriety in the boardroom; playfulness at home.

Oivind Slaatto
Oivind Slaatto

Oivind Slaatto, industrial designer, 1978 . Oivind finds great inspiration in nature, particularly in the snail – with regard to both the construction of the snail shell and the slow pace of the snail. In addition, the Fibonacci sequence, fractals, and other basic mathematical principles fascinate him. These sources of inspiration formed the basis for his very first design after getting his degree. For B&O he made the loudspeaker A9, which was introduced in 2012. The same principles have inspired his new series of lamps – the Swirl. The lamps have actually been in progress ever since he completed his studies in 2008, but Øivind has worked intensely on improving and polishing the features. His desire that light, form and function should work together to provide a handsome light experience, while the design of the lamp is quite airy, ties in very well with the Scandinavian tradition. As such, it is in complete harmony with LE KLINT’s collection, which these lamps will now become a part of.

The philosophy of Oki Sato is reflected in his designs, thanks to which he transforms the interactions of people with the objects surrounding them by creating a parenthesis in their life.
This desire is found in the uncluttered and characteristic shapes of his designs, to which he always adds a touch of humour and conviviality.

Piet Hein
Piet Hein

Piet Hein (1905 –1996) was a Danish scientist, mathematician, inventor, designer, author, and poet.

He mastered it all and made Danish cultural life a little richer, a little prettier and a little more witty with his trademark line, his square head and his quirky language. For him there was no unbridgeable gap between the subjectivity of the fine arts and the objective world of science. He had a rare ability to bring poetry, geometry and design together in a harmonious design, where function and art is weighted equally.

His superellipse was to solve the double contrast between the circle and the square and that of the ellipse and the rectangle. Piet Hein's superellipse shape was adopted by various Scandinavian industries for use in architectural design, furniture, and household consumer products.

In addition to his work with the development of the superellipse Piet Hein has executed a great many other design commissions, from board in wood to the elegant Sinus lamp.

"Art is solution to problems which cannot be formulated clearly before they have been solved".

Svend Aage Holm Sørensen

The Danish designer Svend Aage Holm Sørensen (1913-2004) is known for his self-produced lighting designs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Despite the timeliness of his designs on the vintage market, there is a lack of biographical information about the designer and his eponymous manufacturing company.

It is assumed that Holm Sørensen designed lamps for the well-known Danish lighting manufacturers Fog & Mørup and Lyfa in the 1950s, before establishing his own lighting company, Holm Sørensen A/S to produce and distribute his own designs.

Holm Sørensen's style varies considerably, with designs from the 1950s truly reflecting the mid-century modern lighting style, with clear influences from the De Stijl and Bauhaus movements. His muted floor and table lamps contain the classic tripod base that was popular at the time, referencing designs such as J. A. Busquet's H. Th. Pinocchio Lamp (1954).

From the 1960s onwards, Holm Sørensen's style changed completely. His designs range from colourful, geometric table and floor lamps to hanging lamps with unfinished brass and copper surfaces. These hanging lamps present Holm Sørensen's interpretation of the brutalist style, which was popular from the 1950s to the mid-1970s. Originally invented by Swedish architect Hans Asplund, the style has been adopted internationally by many iconic designers, including Le Corbusier.
