Created in 1971, Verner Panton’s Panthella design is one of his more popular. The basic light principle aimed to create a lamp in which the base as well as the shade would act as a reflector. The lamps light source is hidden under a milky-white, hemispheric acrylic shade and a white, trumpet-like base contributes to a beautiful distribution of light and a well balanced form. The table lamp boasts a shade that is slightly smaller to provide a more consistent design for table top placement. Several versions were produced during its early days, but Panthella with white shade and base is the only edition in production today. “The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination.”- Verner Panton.
