The fixture 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 diffused comfortable light atmosphere due to the color and the downward reflection from the inner shade.
The designer and architect Verner Panton (1926-1998) created Panthella together with Louis Poulsen in 1971. Panton’s figurative and playful design radiates his larger than life personality. Without compromising on quality or functionality, the world-renowned Dane continued to develop new materials for the colorful and captivating spaces that he created out of his enticing designs. Panthella stands out as one of Panton’s most significant design icons with its organic shape that mirrors the softest of light. Panton intended to create a light where both the stand and the shade served as a reflector, combining it with the organic shapes the Danish designer is known for. With its non-glaring light, Panthella serves as a beautiful example of Verner Panton’s brilliant sense of creating atmospheric illumination. The Panthella MINI lamp is a downscaled edition of Verner Panton’s popular Panthella Table lamp. Panthella MINI features a metal shade available in Brass metallized, High lustre chrome plated, Black, White and Orange. The Panthella MINI’s vibrant orange color is based on Panton’s very last exhibition in 1998, called “Light and Color” at the Trapholt Museum of Modern Art in Kolding, Denmark. It is also available with a White opal acrylic shade, spreading the light diffusely for a soft and appealing illumination of the surroundings. With its non-glaring light, the Panthella MINI serves as a beautiful example of Verner Panton’s brilliant sense of creating atmospheric illumination. The smaller format, with a compact 250 mm diameter and 335 mm height, makes for easy placement on windowsills, shelves, tables or other limited surfaces. Regardless of the material, color and size, floor or table, Panthella continues to lift interiors with a cheerful dash and smooth curves, being it in the privacy of a home, a workplace, a public exhibition, a hotel or a cocktail bar.
