Designed by the legendary Verner Panton in 1964, the Verpan Fun 11DM is a pendant lamp comprising a five ring chrome frame supporting cascading tresses of mother-of-pearl discs – each linked by discreet chrome rings. It includes a chrome ceiling canopy. The cord is made of strong black fabric. Panton was a remarkable and irrepressible character whose first office was the back of his VW Camper (where he lived with his dog, Happy). His work is playful and optimistic and he was gifted with a wonderful, child-like imaginary vision. Post-Vietnam, however, these qualities came to be perceived as naïve (although discerning collectors continued to avidly acquire his work) and it wasn’t until his re-discovery by the post-modernists in the nineteen nineties that Panton’s huge contribution to the art of living beautifully was finally acknowledged. Verpan Fun shell lamps emit a wonderful natural glow. The slightest breath of wind causes the individual shells to oscillate, tinkling melodiously one against another whilst simultaneously shimmering with a delightful iridescence. Dimensions: Diameter: 70 cm. Height: 44 cm. Cord: 400 cm. Weight: 10 kilos. Bulb: E27 (E26) max100W.
