KLOT was a spherical lamp, and was available in a wide range of colours and variations for many years. The lamp’s round exterior was originally from an aluminium speaker made by a company in Töreboda.
KLOT was one of the first products lighting designer Lennart Centervall designed for IKEA. He was employed in 1969, after working as a salesman at Danish lighting company Louis Poulsen.
To begin with Lennart worked as a buyer in the lighting department at IKEA in Älmhult. It was his cooperation with suppliers that inspired him to design lamps himself. And KLOT was just the beginning.
