The Panton Fun 1DM is one of the most striking lamps in our collection. The Fun Lamp was designed by Danish/Swiss designer Verner Panton in 1964. Verner Panton's classic Fun lamp series have their origin in a playful game with light and mother of pearl shell or silver. These delightful mother of pearl chandeliers, when not lit, constitute a very decorative element and when lit, give the room a festive, slightly oriental atmosphere. A Danish Designer Who Lived In Switzerland, Verner Panton (1926-1998) Was A Great Master Of Postwar Design. While Extravagant Forms And The Use Of Strong, Bright Color Are Hallmarks Of His Work, It Is Clearly Grounded In The Elegant Functionalism Of The 1950s. Panton Retained A Systematic Approach To Design Throughout His Life, And His Practice Extended To The Design And Development Of Groups Of Works And Entire Spaces. This Volume Celebrates Paint's Diverse Oeuvre, And Constitutes A Significant Contribution To The History Of Postwar Design. The Verner Panton Fun Lamps make a tinkling noise when they are stirred by a gentle breeze. The attractive cascading design of these Fun lamps is composed of hand-cut mother of pearl (capiz) discs. Timeless design and attention to detail make the Panton Fun Lamp a pendant light you just can't pass up. All of the Fun lamps are hand-made by Verpan in Denmark.
