VL38 wall lamp is based on the original design of the VL38 table lamp. The VL38 table lamp was originally designed in the late 1930s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building (the Danish broadcasting house) in Copenhagen (today the Royal Danish Academy of Music). Vilhelm Lauritzen’s lamp design, VL38 and the pendant VL45 both designed for Radiohuset, started to appear in Louis Poulsen catalogues after World War 2 in the middle of the 1940s. VL38 in white/brass was relaunched in fall 2016. To accommodate contemporary advances in light technology and energy efficiency the fixtures have been fitted with LED. The black edition of the VL38 introduced fall 2017 has a stronger outline than the original white version, though maintaining the loved retro look and the soft, curvy expression of the original design.

Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894-1984) is one of the most significant architects in the history of Denmark; he was the trail-blazing figurehead of Danish functionalism. A number of his buildings - Nørrebro Theatre (1931-32), Daells Varehus department store (1928-35), Radiohuset (1936-41) and the first airport built in Kastrup (1937-39) - represented the concentrated essence of contemporary life. Other significant buildings to stem from Lauritzen's drawing board include Folkets Hus (1953-56) better known today as the Vega concert venue, the Shellhuset (1950-51) building and the Danish embassy in Washington (1958-60). In particular the Radiohuset building and the earliest version of Kastrup Airport - both listed today - are considered peerless monuments to modernism in the European genre of construction. Throughout his life, Vilhelm Lauritzen adhered to the principle that architecture is applied art - with equal emphasis on both 'art' and 'applied'. "No life without aesthetics" was another one of Vilhelm Lauritzen's firmly held beliefs. Vilhelm Lauritzen mastered both daylight and artificial lighting.View All Products
