In 2016 the Radiohus Pendant made a comeback under the name of VL45 Radiohus Pendant. It was originally designed in the 1940s by Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building (the Danish broadcasting house) in Copenhagen. The pendant features the original design, with a brass suspension as well as a shade of three layers of mouth-blown glass. The innermost and outermost layers are made of transparent polished glass, while white glass is used for the intermediate layer.

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
