&Tradition Flowerpot Pendant VP2 Gloss

In 1968 the student revolts in Paris, Rome and the United States were attempting to overthrow the old, bombastic rule and replace it with a younger generation of peace, love and harmony. Witness the unexpected power of flowers. If any one designer could be said to capture the spirit of the sixties then it was probably Verner Panton, his colourful chairs had even been sent to the future, 2001 to be precise, by Stanley Kubrick. It was in 1969 that Panton came up with one of his most elegant and memorable designs, the VP1, quickly followed by the much larger VP2 suspension light and two lovely table lamps. Available in a range of colours and finishes their perfect simplicity is still unsurpassed to this day.

Verner Panton was born 1926 in Gamtofte, Denmark and studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen as an architecture student. He worked from 1950-52 in Arne Jacobsen’s architectural practise and then in 1955 founded an independent studio for architecture and design. In the following years Panton created numerous designs for seating furniture and lighting and his early furniture designs attracted attention with their geometric forms. His passion for geometric patterns and bright colour became apparent when he began fusing the usually unrelated elements of a room, floor, walls, ceiling, furnishings, lighting, textiles into a unified whole, these interior installations attained near legendary status. In the early 1960s, Panton began working with Vitra and in 1967 they unveiled what became his most famous design, the Panton Chair. After a lifetime of extraordinary achievement Verner Panton died in 1998 in Copenhagen, long may his designs continue to live on.
