A new experience Aktiv 1

At Louis Poulsen, we create design to shape light. Behind every lamp lies craftsmanship and carefully thought through details with only one purpose: To complement the surroundings with the right light. Light that gives a pleasant atmosphere and make both the room and the people in it, beautiful.

This autumn offers both new and old classics – experience them here:

VL45 Radiohus Pendant was originally created for Radiohuset in Copenhagen, which was designed by the architect Vilhelm Lauritzen – one of the leading advocates of modernism and functionalism. The Radiohus Pendant has since become a cherished design icon across the world.

Radiohus Pendant

The Radiohus Pendant became Louis Poulsen’s best-selling lamp when it was first launched 71 years ago. Fashion moved on, however, and the original lamp was dropped from the company’s range. Nevertheless, several variations of this type of lamp have since appeared. Demand for the original Radiohus Pendant remains high to this day, proving that there is something special about Vilhelm Lauritzen’s lamps.

Light design in harmony with the surroundings

The historical ties between the Radiohus Pendant and the building for which it was created are clearly reflected in the design and the light-technology properties of the light itself. It was originally used for general illumination in many parts of the Radiohuset building. And with its powerful downwards light combined with gentler illumination via the opal glass – which generate softer tones in the room – it is simply ideal for illuminating both everyday objects and more decorative items.

Mouth-blown beauty revitalised

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.

Vilhelm Lauritzen

1894-1984, Denmark

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.
