The wire table light designed by Verner Panton in 1972 is part of an initially very extensive series of table and floor lamps. Verpan produces the table lamp according to the designs by Panton out of chrome plated steel wire and a half-spherical lampshade out of plastic. The lightbulb (E14 for Ø 30 cm or E27 for Ø 40 cm) inside the construction is surrounded by a metal reflector, which directs the light to the inside of the screen and thus produces a diffuse light.
Back in the day, the colors of the wire light in particular attracted a lot of attention - Panton's designs were regarded as provocative color explosions. For example, Panton organized an exhibition in which all the exhibits and surroundings were in orange. This resulted in the exhibition being called "Orangerie", and Verner Panton himself being called crazy in the Danish press.
Verpan doesn’t offer such a wide range of colors today, but Wire hasn't lost any of its charm. The cylindrical wire frame of the base becomes an open half-sphere at the top where the half-spherical plastic shade fulfills the appearance of a sphere. The table lamp, imitating the iconic shape of a light bulb, is available in two sizes. Verpan offers the wire table lamps with a transparent cable (L 220 cm) with on / off switch.
