The Flower Pot lamp designed by Verner Panton has a fascinating background. In 1968 the students’ revolts in Paris, Rome and the United States were overthrowing stiff, old values, and initiating the Flower-Power generation of peace, love and harmony. In 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 Flower Pot with its two semi-circular spheres facing each other has long proved its lasting design quality and is just as much a synonym of our time, too. Verner Panton successfully interpreted the times of the hippie movement and moon landing into visionary colourful interior, lighting and furniture. To him, colour was always more important than form and he believed that colour could evoke feelings. The Flower Pot summarized this theory, lightening up in a variety of bright colours. The Flower Pot VP3 table lamp can be used as a stand alone lighting source or in combination with the other lamps in the Flower Pot series. Place it on an office desk, cabinet or bedside table. Different colours can also be combined.
