Design Verner Panton, 1971
Aluminum base, spun aluminum or opal shade
Made in Denmark by Louis Poulsen

"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination."- Verner Panton

Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella lamp in partnership with Louis Poulsen in 1971. He originally wanted to have Panthella launched with a metal shade, but this was not technologically possible at that time.

Louis Poulsen is now launching a mini-version of the iconic Panthella lamp with a diameter of 9.9" - scaled down from the standard 15.7" size. Panthella Mini features painted metal shades and is available in eight eye-catching colors from Verner Panton's own color spectrum: yellow, orange, purple, red, pink, blue and two shades of green. Versions in white, black and opal acrylic are also available. The miniature Panthella features three light intensities and the latest LED technology.

The colors of the Pathella Mini table lamp are drawn from the last project Verner Panton was working on before his death in 1998: 'Lyset og Farven' ('Light and Color') exhibition, hosted at Trapholt Museum of Modern Art in Kolding, Denmark, which took the form of a complete installation comprising eight rooms in different colors, where the furniture, light fittings and fabrics, created by Verner Panton over a period of 50 years, were framed in a holistic presentation of color and light. Color and imagination were two key elements in the world of Verner Panton, and Louis Poulsen has chosen the new colors for the Panthella Mini from the spectrum that Verner Panton himself had selected for the remarkable universe that was 'Lyset og Farven'.

The Panthella Mini emits a soft and comfortable light. The hemispherical metal shades reflect the light downwards, whereas the acrylic version provides a more diffused distribution. The material used ensures the majority of light is spread diffusely in the room from the surface of the shade. Can be set to one of three light intensities using touch in-line switch. Includes white cord for opal and white fixtures, black cord for all other finishes.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926 – 1998) of Denmark created innovative, futuristic designs in vibrant colors with a variety of materials, especially plastic. Though his style was very "1960s," he regained popularity at the end of the 20th century. As of 2004, his most of his well-known furniture models are still in production. Already an experienced artist, Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen, graduating in 1951. During the first two years of his career, 1950–1952, he worked at the architectural practice of Arne Jacobsen, another Danish architect and furniture designer. Panton started his own design and architectural office and became well known for his innovative architectural proposals, including a collapsible house (1955), the Cardboard House and the Plastic House (1960). In the mid-1950's, Panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. He returned to Denmark in 1958 full of unconventional ideas, one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. In 1960 Panton was the designer of the very first single-form injection-molded plastic chair. The Stacking chair or S chair, became his most famous design and was mass-produced.
Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen was founded in 1874. Some of the company's best designers were Arne Jacobsen and Poul Henningsen.

The revolutionary ideas of designers and and architects such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen could become reality only by profound production know how.
