This variation on Verner Panton's instantly recognizable Flower Pot design, the Flowerpot VP4 Table Lamp, is optimised for use at a desk or table. The Flower Pot design is so enduring, and the range is so broad, because the dual structure of the shade creates an even and glare-free light that will improve any space. The design insight in this version of the piece is the curved wire base and supporting frame. This is not only a gorgeous addition to the design, but allowed Panton to add a hinge to the top of the shade so it can be angled more accurately. Now you can achieve the perfect light for a desk or bedside table with the Flowerpot VP4 Table Lamp.
