VL45 Radiohus Pendant lamp

By Louis Poulsen


  • Description

    Louis Poulsen is to relaunch the original Radiohus Pendant from the 1940s under the name of VL45 Radiohus Pendant. The Radiohus Pendant was originally created for the Radiohuset building on Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, which was designed by the architect Vilhelm Lauritzen – one of the leading proponents of modernism and functionalism. Vilhelm Lauritzen also designed all the lights for the Radiohuset building in partnership with Louis Poulsen. The Radiohus Pendant has since become a cherished design icon that is in great demand at antique markets and auctions.

    Louis Poulsen is relaunching the beautiful Radiohus Pendant in two sizes: 250mm and 370mm diameter. The Radiohus Pendant consists 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.

    The VL45 Radiohus Pendant has been updated from the perspectives of lighting technology and energy efficiency, and it features a 'conventional' screw socket that can accommodate LED bulbs.

    The Radiohus Pendant was originally designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building on Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, which is now home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music.

    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.
