Description

Louis Poulsen VL38 table lamp is a Danish design classic that architect Vilhelm Lauritzen designed in the late 1930s for the Radiohuset building in Copenhagen. The timeless lamp – used once in the studios of the functionalist building – features a beautiful brass arm and a shade with a simple, organic form. The angle of the head can be adjusted with a small hinge, and due to the shade’s white interior the lamp casts a pleasant downward light. The VL38 table lamp is an elegant task light that can also be used for general illumination. What’s more, the minimalist light features a timer function and can be set to turn off in 4 or 8 hours.

Vilhelm Lauritzen

Architect and designer Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894–1984) was one of the most significant Danish architects of his era and a figurehead of Danish functionalism. Lauritzen’s work is still widely visible in various places around Denmark – the Nørrebro Theatre, Copenhagen’s Daells Varehus and the first terminal of Kastrup Airport are great examples of his modernist style. Lauritzen often designed also the furniture and lighting for his buildings, and some of his best-known design pieces are the Radiohuset lamps, designed for Frederiksberg’s radio building and produced by Louis Poulsen. “No life without aesthetics” was Lauritzens firmly held belief, and he considered architecture as a form of applied art. Vilhelm Lauritzen Arkitekter, founded by Lauritzen in 1922, is nowadays one of the most valued architectural offices of Denmark.
