Round table lamp by Verner Panton
The Panthella Table Lamp was designed by Verner Panton in 1971 for Louis Poulsen . It is one of Panton's most popular designs and is characterized by its harmonious, calm form. Panthella produces soft and pleasant light.
The basic idea behind Panthella was to design a lamp whose base, like the shade, serves as a reflector. Panthella emits direct and indirect light. The direct light radiates downwards, the indirect light through the matt white shade.
The organic design of the Panthella table lamp is based on the shape of a mushroom. On its tip, 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.
