Overview

The FlowerPot Table Lamp was designed by Verner Panton in1969 and is presented here in a re-edition by Danish brand &Tradition. The lamp was inpired by the 1968 students’ revolts in Paris, Rome and the United States, overthrowing stiff, old values, and initiating the Flower-Power generation of peace, love and harmony. The same year, Stanley Kubrick pictured the future of the year 2001, featuring the Verner Panton Chair, and man was soon to set foot on the moon. In the world of design, a colourful, playful pendant hung in restaurants and exhibitions, and very soon, in everybody’s homes. The FlowerPot with its two semicircular spheres facing each other has long proved its lasting design quality and is just as much a synonym of our time, too.

&Tradition is a Danish design company that marries tradition with innovation. Lighting spans designs from the 1920s to the present day and includes interior objects by internationally acclaimed designers that stand the test of time.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926–1998) is the ‘enfant terrible’ of Danish furniture design. Characterized by Poul Henningsen as “stubborn and forever young” Panton used his imagination and enthusiasm to combine high-tech materials, playful shapes and an array of bold colours, until an entirely new and different idiom emerged. After graduating from the Royal Academy in Copenhagen in 1951, he worked briefly at Arne Jacobsen’s architectural office, before setting off in his Volkswagen van in a bid to explore Europe and at the same time find possible investors. He returned to Denmark, not with contracts, but full of ideas, and soon after landed his first major job — designing the interior of the Komigen (Comeagain) Inn. This resulted in “the Cone Chair”, which was placed in an all-red setting, causing a sensation.
