Louis Poulsen's Panthella 250 table lamp is a smaller version of the iconic Panthella lamp and one of the most popular products designed by Verner Panton. Panton's aim was to create a lamp in which the base and the shade would both act as reflectors. The light source is hidden under the white, hemispheric acrylic shade and the trumpet-shaped base gives the lamp a distinctive, balanced silhouette and also contributes to the distribution of light.
Originally released in 1971, Panthella is today considered a classic of Danish design and is available in a range of sizes and colours. The combination of an opal grey shade and a chrome base, launched in 2022, is reminiscent of Verner Panton's original colour scheme for the larger Panthella luminaires from 1971.
