This pendant from 1955, manufactured by Louis Poulsen, illustrates the practical insight and formal strenght of its designer, the Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894-1984). During his travels through Central Europe, Lauritzen became inspired by the technical and structural innovations of functionalist architecture, which formed the foundation of his restrained modernist style. The modern and functional approach he applied to architecture, is clearly visible in the lamps he designed for Louis Poulsen.

 

For this lamp, Lauritzen invented a brilliant but simple system to shorten (without cutting) and hide the electric wiring inside the lamp itself so that its aesthetics are in no way compromised. Aside from the tight architectural design, its golden coating and perforations add a luxurious touch.

This Danish lighting manufactory, with headquarters in Copenhagen, was founded by Ludvig R. Poulsen in 1892. At that time the company, which was already Poulsen's second business, mainly supplied tools and electrical components. It is only after his death, when his nephew Louis partnered up with Sophus Kaastrup-Olsen in 1911, that the foundations were laid for the lighting firm that is known today as Louis Poulsen & Co. Successful collaborations with leading architects and designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Vilhelm Lauritzen and Poul Henningsen gave the company an iconic status. Amongst other classic designs, the company produced Henningsen’s famous PH-lamps that became one of the visual trademarks of Louis Poulsen and maybe even of Scandinavian lighting design in general.
