VL Studio is the most recent reintroduction of the lamps designed for Radiohuset (headquarters of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation) in the 1940s by architect Vilhelm Lauritsen. He designed the building itself—still a Copenhagen landmark—as well as the interior, and the Studio lamp was used outside the studios to indicate if a recording was taking place. VL Studio is closely related to the popular Radiohus Pendant, which is also made in triple-layered opal glass, providing a very comfortable light distribution and radiating a delicate glow to the surroundings. The Wall version of VL Studio is true to its original materials and design and has only been modified slightly. It comes in classic polished brass with triple-layered, mouth-blown opal glass—as well as in a matt black version with a graphical and clean expression. The lamp shade can be tilted 90 degrees to the right or left, which allows for flexible light distribution and a customised light experience. With its simple aesthetic and exquisite materials, VL Studio Wall brings a modern touch to any interior.

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 Danish functionalism. A number of his buildings—Nørrebro Theatre (1931—32), Daells Varehus department store (1928—35), Radiohuset (1936—41) and the first airport built in Kastrup (1937—39) represented the concentrated essence of contemporary life. Other significant buildings to stem from Lauritzen's drawing board include Folkets Hus (1953—56) better known today as the Vega concert venue, the Shellhuset (1950—51) building and the Danish embassy in Washington (1958—60). 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.

Throughout his life, Vilhelm Lauritzen adhered to the principle that architecture is applied art—with equal emphasis on both 'art' and 'applied'. "No life without aesthetics" was another one of Vilhelm Lauritzen's firmly held beliefs.

Vilhelm Lauritzen mastered both daylight and artificial lighting. He consistently involved daylight in his architectural projects by including large south and west-facing windows that neatly mixed warm sunlight with the cooler sky light flowing in through windows facing north and east. It was an approach that shifted focus from the limited wall surfaces in the room itself. People, furnishings and fittings are highlighted and shaded in the sculptural light.
