Louis Poulsen VL45 Radiohus 370 Pendant Light
VL45 Radiohus 370 Pendant Light by Louis Poulsen - Vilhelm Lauritzen
Manufacturer: Louis Poulsen
Designer: Vilhelm Lauritzen
Louis Poulsen has relaunched the original Radiohus Pendant from the 1940s under the name of VL45 Radiohus Pendant. The Radiohus Pendant was originally created for the Radiohuset building on Frederiksberg in Copenhagen, which was designed by the architect Vilhelm Lauritzen - one of the leading proponents of modernism and functionalism. Vilhelm Lauritzen also designed all the lights for the Radiohuset building in partnership with Louis Poulsen. The Radiohus Pendant has since become a cherished design icon that is in great demand at antique markets and auctions.
On account of its huge popularity, Louis Poulsen has decided to reintroduce the Radiohus Pendant in September 2016, when the light will be available in two sizes: 250mm and 370mm diameter. The new light will feature the original design, updated to accommodate modern advances in light technology and energy efficiency. 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.
Concept: The fixture provides uniform, general and diffuse illumination. The opening at the bottom of the glass produces downwards directed light. The quality of the glass ensures that the fixture is evenly lit.

Please note that the brass surfaces are untreated. This means that the surface will change over time and develop a patina. The patination process may have already begun at delivery.
