ARC Lighting Collection Inspired by the Interior of a Copenhagen Church

In 2016, Danish design duo Nanna Neergaard and Marie Hesseldahl partnered up to form Manér Studio before they even graduated from Design School Kolding. For their Master’s project, the pair collaborated on a collection of lighting for Danish company, LE KLINT, which was just released to celebrate their 75th anniversary. Referencing the brand’s traditional pleating techniques, they designed the ARC Collection after finding inspiration within Grundtvig’s Church in Copenhagen, whose regal architecture is full of curves and arches.

Even though the inspiration came from traditional architecture dating back almost a century, the designers reinterpreted its features for modern lighting fixtures, while paying homage to the company’s past. The ARC Collection includes a pendant lamp, table lamp, wall lamp, and floor lamp, each with white shades and black stained oak components.

Inspiration: Grundtvig’s Church in Copenhagen
