$394per item

About

Verner Panton 'Panthella Portable' table lamp for Louis Poulsen. Executed in white opal acrylic, this unique battery-powered table lamp lights up any space harmoniously and without glare. The reflection of its internal LED light source on the inner side of the shade provides a subtle ambiance. Rechargeable via USB or its Qi base, this true-to-scale version of the original Panthella table lamp can be used anywhere as it does not depend upon a power supply. The Panthella collection was designed by Verner Panton in 1971 and remains one of his most iconic lighting designs. Panton developed the Panthella table lamp in an organic shape, allowing both the foot and the shade to serve as reflectors. Verner Panton (1926-1998) is famous for his inspirational and colorful personality. Aside from being known for his vibrant character, he was a unique person with a special sense for color, shape, light function and space. Price is per item. Available in unlimited quantities. Also available in other sizes as a non-portable version in separate listings. Integrated dimmable LED 3W 2700K. 4.9 foot USB cable included. 3-step dimming via switch on the base. UL listed. In-stock lead time 2-3 weeks. Out of stock lead time 3 weeks or more. Please note availability is subject to change at any time. Made to order. All sales are final.

About the Designer

Verner Panton

Verner Panton introduced the word “groovy” — or at least its Danish equivalent — into the Scandinavian modern design lexicon. He developed fantastical, futuristic forms and embraced bright colors and new materials such as plastic, fabric-covered polyurethane foam and steel-wire framing. And Panton’s ebullient Pop art sensibility made him an international design star of the 1960s and ’70s. This radical departure from classic Danish modernism, however, actually stemmed from his training under the greats of that design style.

Born on the largely rural Danish island of Funen, Panton studied architecture and engineering at Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where the lighting designer Poul Henningsen was one of his teachers. After graduating, in 1951, Panton worked in the architectural office of Arne Jacobsen, and he became a close friend of Hans Wegner's.

Henningsen taught a scientific approach to design; Jacobsen was forever researching new materials; and Wegner, the leader in modern furniture design using traditional woodworking and joinery, encouraged experimental form. Panton opened his own design office in 1955, issuing tubular steel chairs with woven seating. His iconoclastic aesthetic was announced with his 1958 Cone chair, modified a year later as the Heart Cone chair. Made of upholstered sheet metal and with a conical base in place of legs, the design shocked visitors to a Copenhagen furniture fair. 

Panton went on to successive bravura technical feats. His curving, stackable 1960 Panton chair, his most popular design, was the first chair to be made from a single piece of molded plastic. Three years later, he introduced the S model, the first legless chair crafted from a single piece of plywood, cantilevered on a round metal base. Panton would spend the latter 1960s and early ’70s developing all-encompassing room environments composed of sinuous and fluid-formed modular seating made of foam and metal wire. He also created a series of remarkable lighting designs, most notably his Fun chandeliers — introduced in 1964 and composed of scores of shimmering capiz-shell disks — and the Space Age VP Globe pendant light of 1969.

As you will see from the offerings on 1stDibs, Verner Panton’s designs are made to stand out and put an eye-catching exclamation point on even the most modern decor.
