PANTHELLA OPAL GREY Table Lamp

design Verner Panton, 1971

The exclusive Opal Grey Panthella version’s lampshade is semi-transparent grey, which then turns towards sky blue when lit.  The opalized appearance produces delicate lighting and ambiance.
This Opal Gray finish is available in three different formats: Panthella 320, Panthella Mini and Panthella Portable.

is one of the most famous works of the prolific Danish designer Verner Panton, a pioneer in the use of synthetic materials (see for example his famous Panton chair, developed with Vitra). With the Panthella lamp, Verner Panton was able to exploit the optical qualities of acrylic: the hemispheric shade diffuses a soft light mainly directed downwards, where its convex base acts as a reflector to obtain a non glaring and multi-directional light which illuminates the entire room evenly.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926-1998) is famous for his inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense for color, shape, light function and space.

Over the course of his career, Panton introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.

With remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about light function and influence.

'The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colors. By experimenting with lighting, colors, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting'. - Verner Panton

Verner had a very clear attitude regarding his work and regarding shape, color and function. At the same time, he made conscious and brave use of different materials. His use of different materials often led to his contemporaries disparaging the 'timelessness' of his design. The great interest in his design today proves the opposite.
