A Modern Classic

Designed in 1961 but never put into production before today, the EK61 Opal Pendant is now launched in glass and wood. Designed by the son of the prominent Danish designer Kaare Klint, Esben Klint’s understated and elegant pendant was originally imagined in pleated plastic. Too complicated to produce at the time, the design remained in the family archives until now. The modern iteration is crafted in a pleated, elliptical shape from mouth-blown opal glass. Distinctive oak details reminiscent of traditional Chinese lanterns are meticulously turned and honed by hand for a classic expression. Available in three sizes, the EK61 emits soft, indirect light thanks to its careful combination of classic materials.

Esben Klint

Designer
Esben Klint was born on June 18, 1915. His mother was Le Bredsdorff and his father was the world-famous architect, Professor Kaare Klint, who is generally considered the father of modern Danish design and the man behind such iconic pieces of furniture as the Safari Chair, the Faaborg Chair and the Addition Sofa. At the time of Esben Klint’s birth, the family was living in Java, Indonesia, but a few years later they moved back to Copenhagen where Esben Klint grew up. His mother died when Esben Klint was three years old. For the rest of his childhood, he spent a lot of time with his grandparents – the Danish architect and furniture designer P.V. Jensen-Klint and his wife, Mathilde Jensen-Klint.
