The Panthella floor lamp was designed by Verner Panton for Louis Poulsen in 1971. It is one of the most famous Panton designs and is characterised by its harmonic, peaceful shape. The hemispheric shade ensures a soft, pleasant light.
The fundamental principle behind Panthella was to create a lamp with a base that serves as a reflector as well as a shade. Panthella offers direct and indirect light. The direct light shines downwards and the indirect light through the white lampshade.
The organic design of the Panthella floor lamp was inspired by the shape of a mushroom. The lamp has a chromed ball on top of the shade, which besides its visual function, also serves to raise the top of the lamp to change the bulb if necessary. Furthermore, the cable can be stored in the base of the table lamp when not in use.
The light source of the lamp can be found under the milk-white, hemispheric acrylic shade. Together with the trumpet formed base, it contributes to the distribution of a wonderful light and the whole harmonic form.
Verner Pantons Panthella lamp is also available as a table lamp.
