Philip Bro Ludvigsen
Industrial Designer, 1962
Philip Bro Ludvigsen graduated from the Danish Design School in 1989 and has since tought at the Danish Design School and at the National Institute of Design in India.
In 1989, he established his own design studio “Philip Bro”. Customers included George Jensen, Eilersen Softline, Royal Copenhagen, IKEA and the infamous LE KlINT, all with modern variations of Kaare and Esben Klint’s famous pleated lampshades. In 2003, Philip Bro Ludvigsen created LE KLINT 190, Sunflower, an elegant pendant, which has launched in a versatile ceiling and wall lamp versions.
The major renewal in LE KLINT’s cooperation with “Philip Bro Design’ came in 1994, when he designed the UnderCover by LE KLINT lamp series. His initial concept was to fuse old and new with a modern twist. He introduced colour and patterns onto an unpleated shade that could also be used with the existing classic lampshades. The idea developed quickly and UnderCover pendants became the perfect inner shades in different colours and patterns, which can be replaced, so that one can change ones lampshade to match season, mood or decor.
