Vilhelm Wohlert's classic has been named THE MUSHROOM.

This beautiful wall lamp was created by Vilhelm Wohlert in 1957 for the honorary residence in Copenhagen of Nobel Prize winner Physicist, Niels Bohr.

The pleated shade is hand-folded by our Pleating Technicians in Odense ​and the wall mount is made of untreated light oak.

Vilhelm Wohlert

Wilhelm Wohlert trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, where he was taught by Kaare Klint. He was employed by the Academy as Professor of Structural Art from 1968-1986 and was nominated honorary member in 2001.
His most important works include the reconstruction of the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Museum Bochum, the Gustav Lübcke Museum and a large number of other building and restoration projects.
He was awarded the Academy's 'little' Gold Award, the Eckersberg Medal, the Danish National League for Built Heritage and Landscape's Cultural Prize and several other distinctions.
Vilhelm Wohlert designed floor lamp model 325 for LE KLINT in connection with the refurbishment of Niels Bohr's home in Copenhagen.

"I have always been fascinated with light in its many forms. I am constantly amazed at the ability of pure natural light´s power, to enhance or deplete nature´s beauty. On occasion, I have questioned, how can it get us to simultaneously, think about colour texture and shade, while interacting with our senses and affecting our moods." Kim Weckstrøm Jensen, CEO
