Retro lamp from the 70s
The basic idea behind the Panthella table lamp was to design a lamp whose base, like the shade, serves as a reflector. The Panthella table lamp was designed by Verner Panton for Louis Poulsen in 1971. The original design measures 400 mm in diameter.
According to Verner Panton's wish, Panthella was to be introduced with a metal shade, which was not technologically feasible in 1971. This is why we can now speak of a world premiere, as the Panthella Mini is now available with a metal shade based on the designer's original designs. This is painted white on the inside and directs the light downwards, from where it is reflected upwards by the trumpet base and into the room.
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 sphere. 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 colours come from Verner Panton's last project shortly before his death in 1998, the exhibition 'Light and Colour' at the Design Museum Trapholt in Kolding: yellow, orange, violet, red, pink, blue and two shades of green. In addition, the Panthella MINI is available in white, black and opal acrylic.
Equipped with an LED light source, the Panthella Mini has three different light levels that can be regulated as required.
