The Panthella table lamp was designed by Verner Panton for Louis Poulsen in the year 1971. It is one of the most popular designs from Louis Poulsen and at the same time it is characterized by its harmonic, quite form. Panthella creates soft and pleasant light.
The base idea behind Panthella was to create a lamp with a base that serves as reflector, just as its shade. Panthella spends direct and indirect light. The direct light shines downwards whole the indirect light comes through the matt white lampshade.
The organic design of the Panthella table lamp is laid at the form of a mushroom. At its top, the lamp possesses a chromed sphere. Besides its visual function, the sphere serves to remove the top panel of the lamp that has to be moved if the bulb needs to be changed. In the base of the table lamp furthermore the cable that is not in use can be stored.
The light source of the lamp is placed under a milk-white, half-sphere formed acrylic shade. Together with the trumpet-formed base, it participates at the wonderful light-spread procedure and the harmonic form.
