Designer: Vilhelm Lauritzen

The wall lampt emits light directed primarily downwards. The opal glass provides a comfortable and uniform illumination of the area around the fixture.

The VL Ring Crown family derives from a lamp designed by architect Vilhelm Lauritzen for the Danish Broadcasting House in Copenhagen in the 1940s.

The wall lamp and pendant versions, with the characteristic organic form, were put to good use at the Danish Broadcasting House. For this project Vilhelm Lauritzen also created the VL38 and VL45 lamps. The original VL Ring Crown never appeared there, but not long after, a Ring Crown based on the original drawings was launched. In 1947, the designer Finn Juhl, who worked for Vilhelm Lauritzen, used the VL Ring Crown as part of the interior design for the Danish porcelain manufacturer Bing & Grondahl in Copenhagen.

True to its original materials and design, the VL Ring Crown was reintroduced in 2019. Its mafde of untreated, polished brass and with three, five or seven shades in glossy white, triple-layered, mouth-blown opal glass. It was complemented by the wall lamps and pendants originally installed in the Danish Broadcasting House.

The VL Ring Crown family brings a distinct and authentic touch to sytlish interiors as well as a warm light to softly illiminate comtemporary living.

Please note that the brass surface is untreated. This means that the surface will change over time and develop a patina the patination process may have already begun at delivery. The surfaces will patinate in different stages before reaching the intentional dark golden colour, but before reaching this stage, the surface will have dark spots or areas, which can look like an error. This is however not the case, but fully expected. The surface will continue to patinate and gain the beautiful darker surface over time. The spots and markings will align and disappear with time.
