Louis Poulsen is still producing one of Verner Panton’s greatest successes, Panthella – a lamp, which has achieved a cult-like status, fits right in with the retro trend.
Panthella is a reflection of the organic mode of expression, which is so characteristic for Verner Panton. The fixture, which is formed like a toadstool, is a sculpture in itself. The light source is hidden under a milky-white, hemispherical-formed acrylic shade and a white lacquered trumpet-like foot contributes to a beautiful distribution of the light. Panthella has a couple of unique details; a chrome ball is placed on the top which must be removed when replacing the bulb and at the base of the fixture up to 1.5m of cable can be stored so unused wiring can be hidden away.
The Panthella comes in white only and is available as a floor or table lamp. The floor version retails at £508 and the table lamp is £388.00.
