Flowerpot VP8 adjusts the iconic form of the Flowerpot into the form of a wall sconce, perfect for adorning hallways, reading corners or hanging above bedside tables.

In 1968 the students' revolts in Paris, Rome and the United States were overthrowing stiff, old values, and initiating the Flower-Power generation of peace, love and harmony. Same year, Stanley Kubrick pictured the future of the year 2001, featuring the Verner Panton Chair, and man was soon to set foot on the moon. In the world of design, a colorful, playful pendant hung in restaurants and exhibitions, and very soon, in everybody's homes. The Flowerpot with its two semi-circular spheres facing each other has long proved its lasting design quality and is just as much a synonym of our time, too.

Verner Panton graduated as an architect from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1951, and later founded his own studio and went in the opposite direction of most Danish designers. Pop aesthetics in furniture and interiors were born. Verner Panton successfully interpreted the 'a-changin' times of the hippie movement and moon landing into visionary colorful interior, lighting and furniture. To him, color was always more important than form and creating his own theory of light based on Goethe and the Bauhaus painters, he believed, that color could evoke feelings. Also, In his young days, Panton often set off from Copenhagen in an odd looking converted Volkswagen for a trek across Europe, dropping in on fellow designers to share ideas - and good meals.
