The FlowerPot Pendant is one of the most famous lamps by Danish designer Verner Panton. Created in 1964, it was named after the Flower Power which was triumphant at the time. The simplicity and accuracy of its lines make it as beautiful today as it was yesterday. The shade is made up of two deep-drawing sheets of metal in the shape of half-domes, which provide both directional and glare-free lighting.
The FlowerPot pendant is available in three sizes, called VP1 (Ø23 cm), VP7 (Ø37 cm) and VP2 (Ø50 cm). Each version can be used alone, in a row or in a cluster to compose chandeliers.

Verner Panton started out as a painter before studying architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. After an apprenticeship with architect / designer Arne Jacobsen, Panton pursued a path in furniture and interior design, where he became famous for his avant-garde designs. Such as chairs with no legs and a sofa placed vertically against the wall. In the 60’s and 70’s, his passion for designing entire environments led to immersive interiors featuring his hypnotic patterns and futuristic designs for furniture, lighting, wallpapers, posters and rugs.
Panton’s pioneering use of materials, colours and shapes earned him a reputation as a visionary. In recognition of his life achievement, he was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Dannebrog Order in 1998 by the Queen of Denmark.
The Flower Pot Lamp became emblematic of the Flower Power peace movement during the 60’s. With its range of vivid colours, it is just as synonymous with modernity now as it was when launched in 1968. Panton’s Topan lamp is its little sister, a simple semi-sphere that can also be configured in clusters. "Panton’s provocative use of materials, geometric shapes and psychedelic colours set him apart from his contemporaries," notes Martin Kornbek Hansen. "Our portfolio of &tradition products wouldn’t be complete without this endearing example from this evangelist of radical design."
