MOD. VERNER PANTON FUN 1-STM 47-INCH MODERN PANTON FUN FLOOR LAMP






MOD. VERNER PANTON FUN 1-STM 47-INCH MODERN PANTON FUN FLOOR LAMP - The Fun 1STM lamp is part of Panton's Fun lamp collection which clearly displays his love of lush extravagance and functional elegance. The Fun 1STM lamp has chains of thin pearl discs hanging from metal rings. The discs spread and reflect the light from the bulb inside and movements from the discs create a cascade of shimmering brilliance. Most people are familiar with Danish designer Verner Panton for his S-shaped chair and op-art environments, but his Fun Lamps (1964) are equally iconoclastic. One of the most sought-after modern lighting designs at auction today, the Fun Lamps give modernism a decorative dimension without being cute – think of them as functional jewelry for interiors. The cascading design is composed of hand-cut mother of pearl discs, which make wonderful musical sounds when stirred by a breeze. These lamps have an ethereal presence, with light shining through the discs to produce a warm, opulent glow.
