1950s Vilhelm Lauritzen 'Radiohus' Sconces for Louis Poulsen

0.00

1950s Vilhelm Lauritzen 'Radiohus' sconces for Louis Poulsen. Executed in opaline matte glass and brass. The Radiohus lights were originally designed in the 1930s by Vilhelm Lauritzen in partnership with Louis Poulsen for the construction of the Radiohuset building on Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, which is now home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music. It was originally used for general illumination in many parts of the Radiohuset building. And with its powerful downwards light combined with gentler illumination via the opal glass, which generate softer tones in the room, it is simply ideal for illuminating both everyday objects and more decorative items.
