Adding zest, vim and vigour to even the most minimalist of rooms, our Verner Panton-inspired Flowerpot Table Lamp is the perfect product to spice up a space. Sitting just 18cm tall, this little lamp really packs a punch, its two inter-woven shades allowing light to diffuse softly around any table it stands on. And with red, black, white, yellow, green and blue finishes available, there is almost no setting that it doesn't look at home in.
Verner Panton was a designer who was very much a product of his time; heavily influenced by the hippy movement of the 1960s and the desire to innovate in a playfully-subversive way. The Flowerpot Table Lamp was a classic example of this. Along with the obvious 'Flower Power' wordplay, it was also a medium for Panton to use his preferred material, plastic, to create a brightly-coloured range that reflected the psychedelic arts scene that was sweeping the world in the late 60s. What was seen as revolutionary at the time is now firmly established as a mid-century design classic.
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.
"Choosing colours should not be a gamble. It should be a conscious decision. Colours have a meaning and a function."
