Pendant lamp with five aluminium reflectors
Verner Panton VP Globe exudes futurism like hardly any other luminaire. Designed in 1969, the year of the first moon landing, the design of the luminaire illustrates the world's new belief in technology and the future. In the midst of this spirit of optimism and inspired by the thought of a new era, Verner Panton designed the VP Globe .
Controllability, transparency and colorfulness are the essential features of the VP Globe . The sphere made of acrylic glass acts like an air bubble from which the light emerges. Inside the sphere, a total of five reflectors are suspended on three steel threads. These surround the centrally located illuminant.
The VP Globe not only provides a soft, pleasant and balanced room light, but also shows Verner Panton's feeling for technical aspects, materials and the interplay of possibilities in a unique way.
"Colour planning is crucial in the design of an environment. It is not enough to say that red equals red and blue equals blue. I generally work in parallel with the colors of the color spectrum and consider how they follow each other within the spectrum. In this way I can control the warm or cold character of a room and create an intended mood" , says Verner Panton about the interplay of colours in design.
Although the play with colour temperatures and light colours is no longer a rarity in this day and age and with modern lighting systems, the VP Globe pendant luminaire illustrates in a unique way the mechanical and optical interplay of light, light colours and room moods. In addition, the classic luminaire enriches any environment with its clear acrylic glass shade and the technical and cool-looking aluminium reflectors and attracts all eyes.
The VP Globe was originally designed by Verner Panton for the company Louis Poulsen. Today Verpan produces the extraordinary lamp, which is delivered including a black textile cable and a ceiling canopy.
