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, where he became famous for his avant-garde designs. Such as chairs with no legs and a sofa placed vertically against the 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."
&Tradition VP4 Flowerpot Desk Lamp was designed by Verner Panton in the 1969 and inspired by the Flower Power movement of that era, now a modern lighting design icon that has stood the test of time. The VP4 desk lamp sits on a circular metal wire base base which then rises up to make the short stem, this also gives it the option of how high the lamp sits as it can slide up and down.
