topan vp6 pendant lamp

Design Verner Panton, 1960
Aluminum, fabric cord
Made in Denmark by &Tradition

Sometimes the simplest things are the most lasting and memorable, the Topan Pendant being a brilliant example. It was the first mass produced lamp by Verner Panton, later to be followed by the FlowerPot. Topan's simplicity and coolness proves to be of lasting value. Topan was originally designed for the hotel and restaurant Astoria in Trondheim, Norway, in 1960. Here, Panton used his textile designs Geometry I to IV for floors, walls and ceilings in order to give the room a uniform image. The Topan pendants hung all over, dividing large rooms into smaller and more intimate spaces.

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.

Topan is available in many bold colors with matching textile cord, an aluminum globe, 9 feet of cord and aluminum ceiling rosette.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926 – 1998) created innovative, futuristic designs in vibrant colors with a variety of materials. Many of his well-known furniture designs have remained in continuous production and others have been reintroduced. Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art graduating in 1951. He subsequently worked in the architecture office of Arne Jacobsen. Panton started his own design and architectural practice and was well known for his innovative architectural proposals including a collapsible house, the Cardboard House and the Plastic House. In 1953 Panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. He returned to Denmark full of ideas, one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. Based on his vision of a one-piece one material cantilever chair, Panton in collaboration with Vitra developed the first cantilever plastic chair. The Panton chair became his most famous design and has been in production since 1967.
