First intended for use in the Danish Broadcasting House in Copenhagen, the stunning pendant creates an atmosphere of timeless grandeur and sophistication. The curvaceous opal shades have been crafted from three layers of mouth-blown glass, suspended from a slender, circular brass frame; both beautifully complimenting one another and uniting as one to form a stylish, authentic design. Producing soft, glare-free light, the pendant's warming glow creates an inviting ambience, perfect for hanging in a dining or living room. A classic piece that remains timeless in splendour and beauty, the VL Ring Crown 3 Pendant Light is a stunning addition to an interior space. Part of the Louis Poulsen VL Ring Crown Family.
Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894–1984) was 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, Daells Varehus department store, Radiohuset and the first airport built in Kastrup – represented the concentrated essence of contemporary life. Other significant buildings to stem from Lauritzen’s drawing board include Folkets Hus better known today as the Vega concert venue, the Shellhuset building and the Danish embassy in Washington.
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.
