Vilhelm Lauritzen table lamp with adjustable shade from 1948. Slightly curved conical shade. Stem partly covered with teak. Lamp is in a very good condition with a lovely patina. Manufactured by Louis Poulsen. Vilhelm Lauritzen is one of the most important Danish architects and a groundbreaking representative of Danish functionalism. His projects Daells Varehus, Copenhagen Airport and the building of the National Danish radio station DR are all considered unique monuments of modernism in European Architecture today. He is particularly known for his 1930s table lamp designs. Arne Jacobsen, Poul Henningsen, Finn Juhl, Børge Mogensen and Hans Wegner are Lauritzens equals.
