Floor lamp by Verner Panton
The Panthella floor lamp was designed by Verner Panton for Louis Poulsen in 1971. It is one of Panton's most popular designs and is characterized by its harmonious, calm form. The semicircular shade provides a soft, pleasant light.
The basic principle of Panthella was to design a lamp whose base, like the shade, serves as a reflector. Panthella provides direct and indirect light. The direct light radiates downwards, the indirect light through the white shade.
The organic design of the Panthella floor lamp is based on the shape of a mushroom. On its top, the lamp has a chrome-plated ball. In addition to its visual function, the ball serves to lift the ceiling plate of the lamp, which must be removed to replace the bulb. In the bottom of the table lamp can also be stowed away unneeded cable.
The light source of the lamp is located under a milk-white, hemispherical acrylic shade. Together with the trumpet-shaped base, it contributes to the wonderful light distribution and the harmonious shape.
Verner Panton's Panthella lamp is also available as a table lamp.
