VL Studio Wall


Color: Lacquered Brass

The VL Studio family derives from a lamp designed by architect Vilhelm Lauritzen for Radiohuset (The Radio House, headquarters of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation) in Copenhagen in the 1940s. The name "Studio" was chosen because some of the lamps were used outside the studio to indicate—with either a red or green light—whether recording was taking place. Lauritzen was the architect behind Radiohuset, a functionalist design, that was inaugurated in 1945. Radiohuset is a "gesamtkunstwerk"—like most of Lauritzen’s buildings—meaning that he designed all of the interiors and every detail of the building. When developing Radiohuset, Lauritzen designed a broad collection of lamps in close collaboration with Louis Poulsen. For this project, Lauritzen created the Studio lamp, the VL 38 Table lamp (VL38), the Radiohus Pendant (VL45), and the VL Ring Crown lamps. After the creation of the lamps in the 1940s, they were produced by Louis Poulsen. However, over the years, they were all taken out of production.

The VL45 (Radiohus Pendant) and the VL38 (Table lamp originally from the interior of the building) were reintroduced in 2016, the VL Ring Crown was reintroduced in 2019, and the VL Studio lamp in 2022. The VL Studio lamp is closely related to the Radiohus Pendant. Both lamps create diffused light through opaline glass, which provides a pleasant general light around the lamp.

True to its original materials and design, the VL Studio Wall Lamp was reintroduced in 2022 with minor modifications. It is made of clear-lacquered brass with glossy white, triple-layered, mouth-blown opal glass. The VL Studio Wall lamp is also available in a new matte-black version for a more clean and graphic expression compared to the soft, warm look of the polished brass version. With its simple aesthetic and exquisite materials, the VL Studio Wall Lamp brings a modern touch and warm ambiance to any interior.
