Louis Poulsen Panthella Mini Table Lamp
Louis Poulsen’s miniature version of Verner Panton’s iconic Panthella measures 250mm in diameter, while the original version from 1971 measured 400mm. The new version is being launched with metal shades, true to Verner Panton’s original idea.
Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella in partnership with Louis Poulsen in 1971. His idea was to have Panthella launched with a metal shade, but this was not possible from a technological perspective at that time.
That is why what is being launched now is a world first, based on Verner Panton’s original drawings. The new metal shades are white on the inside and direct the light downwards, from where it is reflected up and out into the room from the trumpet-shaped foot.
The colours are drawn from the last project Verner Panton was working on before his death in 1998 ('Lyset og Farven' – 'Light and Colour' – exhibition at Trapholt Museum of Modern Art in Kolding, Denmark): yellow, orange, mauve, red, pink, blue and two shades of green. Panthella MINI will also be available in white, black and opal acrylic. Panthella MINI features three light intensities and the latest LED technology and will be in stores as from September 2016.

The Danish architect Verner Panton caused a stir in the 60ies and kept on designing successful products until his death in 1998. Times they were a-changin? - and Panton’s innovatory ideas and daring use of modern materials and lavish colours were an instant hit. Panton became synonymous with sensational textile, furniture and lighting design. Works like the ‘Cone Chair’ and the ‘Globe Light’ are eternal Scandinavian design icons!
