Pendant lamp with five aluminum reflectors
Verner Panton VP Globe exudes futurism like no other luminaire. Designed in 1969, the year of the first moon landing, the lamp's design exemplifies the world's new faith 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 characteristics of the VP Globe . The acrylic 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. The surround the centrally located illuminant.
The VP Globe thus not only provides a soft, pleasant and balanced room light, but also uniquely demonstrates Verner Panton's flair for technical aspects, materials and the interplay of possibilities.
"Color 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 space and create an intended mood." , says Verner Panton about the interplay of colors in design.
While playing with color temperatures and light colors is no longer a rarity in today's world and with modern lighting systems, the VP Globe pendant luminaire illustrates in a unique way the mechanical and optical interplay of light, light colors and room moods. In addition, the classic luminaire enriches any environment with its clear acrylic shade and the technical and cool-looking aluminum reflectors and attracts all eyes.
