VL38 Wall Lamp - Two Color Variants
- The Designer
- The Maker
VL38 wall lamp is based on the original design of the VL38 table lamp. The VL38 table lamp was originally designed in the late 1930s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building (the Danish broadcasting house) in Copenhagen (today the Royal Danish Academy of Music). Vilhelm Lauritzen's lamp design, VL38 and the pendant VL45 both designed for Radiohuset, started to appear in Louis Poulsen catalogues after World War 2 in the middle of the 1940s. VL38 in white/brass was relaunched in fall 2016. To accommodate contemporary advances in light technology and energy efficiency the fixtures have been fitted with LED. The black edition of the VL38 introduced fall 2017 has a stronger outline than the original white version, though maintaining the loved retro look and the soft, curvy expression of the original design.

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.
Louis Poulsen believes in passionate craftsmanship that produces quality lighting and design products that are pleasing to the eye and to the light. In close partnership with designers, architects and other talents like Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Øivind Slaatto, Alfred Homann, Oki Sato and Louise Campbell, Louis Poulsen has established themselves as one of the key global suppliers of high quality architectural and decorative lighting. Defying traditional product categories, their products serve and span the professional and private lighting markets for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Louis Poulsen's means are simple and beautiful design. The purpose is to create an attractive ambience that affects people and spaces. The Louis Poulsen Collection is designed to shape light and are a key decor and furnishings element to create a Scandinavian sensibility for the home and garden. These simple lines, sophisticated styling, and impeccable craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Louis Poulsen and are key values of Fjorn Scandinavian.
