Born: 1853 Died: 1930 Best-known work: Grundtvigskirken in Copenhagen and the folded Le Klint lamp shade Education: Engineer and artist
Background P.V. Jensen Klint was a Danish architect and painter. He graduated as an engineer in 1877 and from the Danish Painter School in 1885. From 1892 to 1916 he worked as a math teacher while he started his work as an architect.
He is the man behind Grundtvigskirken – Grundtvig’s Church – in Copenhagen, built from 1921-1940. He also designed Bethlehemskirken – Bethlehem Church – also in Copenhagen. These two churches were finished by his son Kaare Klint Jensen, and are still an inspiration for Danish architects.
In addition to the large-scale buildings, P.V. Jensen Klint also designed a stoneware lamp and needed a shade to fit it. Therefore he invented the folded shade that Le Klint is known for today. It took 40 years from the invention to the lamp being produced, but today the iconic shade is sold in great numbers.
