Lamp by Verner Panton. An object cannot become a design icon until it has stood the test of time and appears quite naturally in different settings, giving it a symbolic aura of its own. FlowerPot is just that. The famous lamp, designed in 1968, was named after the happy days of Flower Power. Of the lamps Verner Panton designed, FlowerPot stand out as some of the simplest and most memorable designs.
The lamp consists of two semi-circular spheres facing each other. The diameter of the upper sphere is twice as large as the lower one. The lower sphere hides the bulb, while its interior serves as a colourful reflecting surface.
