Verner Panton's Flower Pot Lamp was designed in 1968 as a joyous celebration of the bright and bold designs of the period. The adjustable shade and subtle light of this Danish mid-century classic is finally available in a larger, floor version, the Flowerpot Floor Lamp. Panton's love of rich colour and organic form is obvious in the central orb and parallel covering. But, this floor variation is also the most versatile in the range and is representative of Panton's work in the 1960s and still as stylish today. The Flowerpot Floor Lamp would be a fantastic centrepiece in a retro living room or a contemporary study.
Verner Panton was a designer who was very much a product of his time; heavily influenced by the counterculture movement of the 1960s and the desire to innovate in a playful and subversive way. The Flowerpot Floor Lamp is a classic example of this. Along with the obvious 'Flower Power' wordplay, it was also a medium for Panton to create as simple a design as possible and a brightly-coloured range that reflected the psychedelic arts scene that was sweeping the world in the late 60s. What was seen as radical at the time is now firmly established as a mid-century design classic. The Flowerpot range also includes the Flowerpot VP4 Table Lamp, the Flowerpot Lamp and the Flowerpot Table Lamp.
Verner Panton was the first architect to work with form and design using plastic as his main material. When he created the Panton chair, the world’s first single-form, injection-moulded chair, it was considered a revolutionary technique back in the 1960s. Throughout his life Panton created innovative designs that combined materials in unconventional ways and was greatly influenced by the impact of colour on his work . Verner Panton represents design without borders. Verner Panton’s vision: to create design using unconventional techniques.
