Pendant luminaire with five aluminium reflectors
Verner Panton's VP Globe radiates futurism like no other light. Created in 1969, the year of the first moon landing, the design of the lamp illustrates the world's new belief in technology and the future. In the midst of this atmosphere of departure and inspired by the thought of a new era, Verner Panton designed the VP Globe.
Controllability, transparency and colourfulness are the main features of the VP Globe. The acrylic glass sphere 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 light source.
In this way, the VP Globe not only provides soft, pleasant and balanced room lighting, but also shows Verner Panton's feeling for technical aspects, materials and the interplay of possibilities in a unique way.
"Color planning is crucial in the design of an environment. It is not enough to say that red is red and blue is blue. I generally work with the colors of the color spectrum in parallel and consider how they follow each other within the spectrum. This allows me to 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 playing with colour temperatures and light colours is no longer a rarity in today's world and with modern lighting systems, the VP Globe pendant luminaire illustrates the mechanical and optical interplay of light, light colours and room moods in a unique way. In addition, the classic luminaire enriches every 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 this extraordinary lamp, which is supplied with a black textile cable and a ceiling canopy.
