This famous lamp, designed in 1969, was named after the Flower Power generation of this era, but its symbolic design also echoes other events occurring at that time.
This was also the year of the first landing on the moon, and with its two semi-circular spheres facing each other, Verner Panton’s FlowerPot lights successfully imbued every home with a reminder of this lunar odyssey – albeit in a range of striking colours.
Of the lamps Verner Panton designed from that period, FlowerPot stands out with its distinctive organic shape and has become a modern design icon. Not only does it look stunning, it is also designed to diffuse light perfectly around the room, without any one focal point.
This makes it a perfect light for children’s rooms, offering diffused light around the room – and those divine shades are a brilliant way of adding a burst of colour and picking up on a detail from perhaps the bedding, or a smaller piece of soft furnishing in the room.
While the form of the FlowerPot light is elegant and iconic, Verner Panton believed that colour was always more important than form and the FlowerPot range summarises this theory with its array of scrumptious colours. Plus there are also two designs of Flower Pot Table lamps. See the full FlowerPot Light Colourways here.
Designer Details Panton’s inspired, imaginative designs made him unique and put him among the very best designers of the “Danish golden age”. Verner Panton was popular in his day, but maybe even more so today, with many of his products classics of modern design.
