Sax 233 Wall Lamp



| /

In 1952 Erik Hansen designed the first Sax (scissor) lamp for Le Klint. For many people, the classic lines and texture of the paper shade together with natural wood are synonymous with Le Klint. Over the years the Sax lamp has been produced as an uplighter and a down lighter in different types of wood. Today this lamp is available in light oak, black oak and smoked oak. The Sax lamp has been copied by many but there is only one original.

La Klint Materials: Standard or Paper?

A standard shade is made of a special foil, which means it can be cleaned with water since the surface is resistant to liquids. It is also fire-resistant and UV-resistant, ensuring a long product lifespan. It is produced in Europe and of very high quality. The foil can be recycled as PVC after its life as a lampshade, thus contributing to new products such as drainpipes and sewage pipes.

A paper shade can have an equally long lifespan if well taken care of, but it will patina more quickly than the standard shade, taking on a slightly golden hue in its white color. Additionally, water should not be used for cleaning a paper shade; instead, a soft dust brush can be used to remove dust from the shade. The paper shade is made of 100% FSC-certified paper and is produced in Europe. The paper can be recycled as paper waste or simply burned in your own wood-burning stove, as it is entirely clean paper.
