VL Ring crown 5 pendant lamp

By Louis Poulsen


  • Description

    The VL Ring Crown family derives from a lamp designed by architect Vilhelm Lauritzen for the Danish Broadcasting House in Copenhagen in the 1940s.

    True to its original materials and design, the VL Ring Crown was reintroduced in 2019. It’s made of untreated, polished brass and with three, five or seven shades in glossy white, triple-layered, mouth-blown opal glass. It was complemented by the wall lamps and pendant originally installed in the Danish Broadcasting House.

    Vilhelm Lauritzen

    Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894–1984) is one of the most significant architects in the history of Denmark; he was the trail-blazing figurehead of functionalism in Denmark. He is the architect behind a range of well-known buildings, including Nørrebro Theatre, Daells Varehus department store (the Skt. Petri Hotel today), the Radiohuset building and the famous Terminal 39 at Kastrup Airport. Other significant buildings to stem from Vilhelm Lauritzen’s drawing board include Folkets Hus (known today as the Vega concert venue), the Shellhuset building and the Danish embassy in Washington. 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.
