Flowerpot lamps och Verner Panton

Verner Pantons flowerpot lampor är så snygga i sin enkelhet, härliga i sin färgrikhet. Hos &Tradition hittar man alla sorters snyggheter, bl.a. Verner Pantons lampor. (alla bilder och information om Verner Panton från &Traditions hemsida). Länk till &Tradition här
Desingmekka har inget samarbete med &Tradition, jag bara beundrar och gillar deras produkter.

Det verkar som om jag ovetandes har gillat dessa lampor i åratal. Kika bara högst upp på Designmekkas FB-sida. Den där orange lampgrejen!

Och nu, efter alla dessa år är det dags att äga en, eller några, av dessa snyggingar. Frågan är bara vilka färger. Alla är ju snygga på sitt eget lilla sätt. Jag lutar mot några olika nyanser i blått. Och så en enda färgklick: gul. Jag älskar gult. Rätt sorts gul såklart. Den där lite mättade mörkgula färgen som är så snygg. Som den här lampan.

Vilka färger tycker du funkar bäst ihop/är snyggast; lampmässigt?

Verner Panton

Verner Panton started out as a painter before studying architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. After an apprenticeship with architect/designer Arne Jacobsen, Panton pursued a path in furniture and interior design. It was during this part of his career that he became famous for his avant-garde work, such as a series of chairs with no legs and a sofa curated to be placed vertically against a wall. In the 60’s and 70’s, his passion for designing entire environments led to immersive interiors featuring his hypnotic patterns and futuristic designs for furniture, lighting, wallpapers, posters and rugs. Panton’s pioneering use of materials, colours and shapes earned him a reputation as a visionary.

The Flowerpot lamp became emblematic of the Flower Power peace movement during the 60’s. With its range of vivid colours, it is just as synonymous with modernity now as it was when launched in 1968. Panton’s Topan lamp – the first he ever designed – is the Flowerpot’s little sister, made up of a simple semi-sphere that can be configured in clusters. “Panton’s provocative use of materials, geometric shapes and psychedelic colours set him apart from his contemporaries,” notes Martin Kornbek Hansen. “Our portfolio of &Tradition products wouldn’t be complete without this endearing example from this evangelist of radical design.”
