Part of the VL38 range, the VL38 Floor Lamp is an elegant floor lamp, featuring an organically shaped shade paired with a slender brass stem. Initially released in white and brass only, the VL38 range is now available in a classic black and brass finish.
The VL38 floor lamp was originally designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the Radiohuset building in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. Now home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music. The lamps curved shade provides direct down-lighting providing a pleasant non-glaring light source. A small hinge at the top of the brass arm allows for minute adjustment making it ideal for use as a reading lamp by your favourite chair.
Lauritzen, was one of the most prominent architects of the functionalist & modernist movements, and although out of production for some time the demand for the original lamps at auctions and antique markets today proves that Vilhelm Lauritzen’s timeless design will never go out of fashion.
Although true to its original design these lamps have been subtly updated with an LED light source bringing it up-to-date with modern light technology and energy efficiency.
“Vilhelm Lauritzen was a master of the art of uniting materials and light. He carried out indepth studies of daylight as early as in the 1920s, and throughout his working life he was devoted to developing and improving his lamps, which blended in harmoniously with the buildings he designed.” Rasmus Markholt.
