Overview

The Topan Pendant VP6 by Verner Panton and &Tradition captures the spirit of the 1960's with its bold spherical shape. In 1959 Panton installed the Topan VP6 pendants at the Hotel Astoria in Trondheim, Norway. The Topan VP6 was the first lamp by Verner Panton to be produced in series.The new colors and materials proposed by &tradition result in a contemporary and modern design. The spherical shade made of aluminium is open on the bottom and, according to the designer’s suggestion, is supposed to be hung as close as possible to the table surface or the floor. The spherical pendant lamp can be arranged into a stylish lamp ensemble.

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.
