It might look like a piece from the 60s, but the Le Klint 101 pendant light actually dates back to the 40s.

The 101 is the work of architect Kaare Klint, produced in 1944 and generally known as the ‘Fruit Lantern’ (due to its shape). It’s still made in a very old fashioned way too – hand-folded from a single sheet of plastic, arriving assembled with a 2m white flex, ceiling rose cover and lamp holder.

All of that is priced from £210, depending on your choice of size.
