The Fruit and the Bell

Le Klint 101A aka The Fruit Lantern was designed by Kaare Klint in 1944 and is one of the loveliest lamps you can imagine. The smallest model with a diameter of 27 cm /height 36 cm, is handmade in paper. Several larger models have been introduced over the years, all handmade in Denmark, from a single sheet of lampshade foil or plastic.
