Description

The elegant VL45 Radiohus pendant light from Louis Poulsen was originally designed for the Radiohus building in Copenhagen in the 1940s. The mastermind behind both the pendant and the building is architect Vilhelm Lauritzen, known for his functionalist architecture in Denmark. The VL45 Radiohus pendant features a beautiful round shade made of white opal glass that filters soft uniform light. The opening on the bottom allows direct downwards light. The VL45 Radiohus pendant is a timeless luminaire that is perfect for general illumination as well as for the dining table.

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.
