vl38 wall lamp

Design Vilhelm Lauritzen, 1940s
Aluminum, brushed brass
Made by Louis Poulsen

The VL38 family is born of functionalism. The light head is organically shaped, painted white and obliquely angled. The light arm, which is made of brass, features a small hinge on top to allow minute adjustment of the light head. The luminaire provides accurate downward light, making it ideal for use as a work light or as more general illumination.

The VL38 lamp 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 (1894-1984) was 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.

VL38 wall lamp features a punched aluminum wall box with a spun aluminum shade. The stem is brushed brass. The fixture emits downward directed light. The angle of the shade can be adjusted to optimize light distribution. The shade is painted white on the inside to ensure a soft comfortable light. The VL38 family includes, table, floor and wall lights. VL38 wall lamp should be hardwired to a standard electric junction box by a licensed electrician.

Chris, more than a month ago.
Was excited to purchase a pair of these(an iconic design)for retirement new home build. Ad copy said made by Louis Poulsen. Poulsen is a Danish company. Price per lamp was commensurate with "Made in Denmark". Product copy said nothing else regarding origin. Lamps received said "made in China". Would not have purchased at this price had it been clearly stated in product copy. Hive accepted return of lamps at full refund.
