Kim Jensen has taken a different route to the design business than most. From the Danish Army to many years in the Norwegian Mountains working with tourism – a back injury forced Kim to change his profession, and he joined Stokke Tripp Trapp as regional sales manager. Finally in 1998 he came back home, to LE KLINT as export manager – and since 2001 he has been the CEO of the company.

Kim Jensen has always been fascinated with light in its many forms and is constantly amazed at the ability of pure natural light’s power to enhance or deplete nature’s beauty. He is interested in how light can get us to simultaneously think about colour texture and shade, while interacting with our senses and affecting our moods.
