The Panthella Mini emits a soft and comfortable illumination. The metal version directs the light directly downwards and creates a soft and comfortable illumination due to the inner white painted shade and the reflection from the trumpet shaped stem. The acrylic version leaves a diffuse comfortable light atmosphere due to the color and the downward reflection from the inner shade.
Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella in partnership with Louis Poulsen in 1971. His idea was to have Panthella launched with a metal shade, but this was not possible from a technological perspective at that time. That is why what is being launched now is a world first, based on Verner Panton’s original drawings.
The colors 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'.
