Louis Poulsen’s VL Studio table lamp boasts a timeless, clean-lined look typical of Danish design. The luminaire is made of brushed brass that, over time, will develop a gorgeous patina, while the dome is crafted from mouth-blown, triple-layered opal glass that diffuses the light softly, providing a glare-free glow that instantly creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere in any space. The VL Studio lamp can be used both as a table lamp and as a small floor lamp.
The VL Studio lighting family is based on a design originally created in the 1940s for Copenhagen’s Radiohus building, which houses the headquarters of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. The mastermind behind both the lamp and the building is architect Vilhelm Lauritzen, known for his functionalist architecture in Denmark. Like most of Lauritzen’s designs, Radiohus was a “gesamtkunstwerk”, and its interior, including lighting, was also created by the architect. Launched in 2022, the VL Studio luminaires derive from the lamps used outside of the studios to indicate whether recording was on either with a green or red light.
