Design Verner Panton, 1964
Metal discs, metal rings, metal frame, chrome ceiling plate
Made in Denmark by VerPan ApS.

Fifty years ago, Verner Panton shook up the world of lighting design with a major launch at the 1964 Cologne Furniture Fair. His lamp series "FUN" was like nothing anyone had ever seen before. Some loved it - some laughed at it - but no one was indifferent. Now, 50 years on, Panton's FUN has become one of his most iconic works.

The lamps in the Fun series are composed of metal round discs which are flexibly connected with one another by small metal rings. Arranged in chains of varying length, the discs are either suspended from a metal ring or - in the case of the larger models - a round ceiling plate. Depending on the number and length of the chains of discs, the lamps take different shapes. The bulb is in each case located in the center. The heat emitted by the bulb creates thermal radiation that creates slight movement among the discs, which act as reflectors. Fun was created to be seen and heard. It deserves much more than a corner and a remote spot in your room. Use it as a prominent and inspiring part of your interior design.

As one of the most influential and remarkable designers of the era, Verner Panton (1926-1998) has created objects, spaces and art. He was a master of the fluid, futuristic style of 1960s design which introduced the Pop aesthetic to furniture and interiors. His original, space age designs have won numerous awards and been exhibited in museums and private collections around the world. His ideologies and design concepts are apparent and have had great influence on 21st century design.

The FUN series is offered in a variety of sizes and configurations. The Fun 1DA pendant light features metal discs on a three ring metal frame. Discs are connected with small metal rings. Fun 1DA includes a chrome ceiling canopy. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

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.
One of the true rebels and pioneers in the world of lighting and furniture design, Verner Panton is an icon. True to his vision, his creative language shocked surroundings when he started designing and continues to leave people amazed today. Adding a touch of Panton instantly transforms a room. For many years Verpan has produced his famous lamps, carefully merging quality and originality.
