Lampe av Verner Panton

The Verner Panton Spiral Lamp features mirror-chrome plated plastic spirals from a cascading triple-level metal frame. Each spiral is connected to the frame with small metal rings. The Spiral Lamp by Verner Panton has one light bulb which is located in the center. A modern design classic, the Spiral Lamp was first designed by Verner Panton in 1969 for the Visiona Fantasy Lanscape Installation commissioned by Bayer, an almost breathtaking psychedelic interior staging wallowing in colors and forms. The original Spiral Lamps were produced by J. Luber AG starting in 1969 and ending in mid 1970s. Danish manufacturer Verpan has reissued the Verner Panton Spiral Lamps to the original specifications, using the original Verner Panton drawings. These famous space age lamps are part of the Modern Design Icon collection at Stardust. Verner Panton’s «Spiral» lamp has its origin in a playful game with light and shadow. Spiral, when not lit, constitutes a very decorative element and when lit, gives a room a wonderfully warm diffused glow thanks to its reflective mirror-like properties. When the lamp is switched on, the reflective chrome plated spirals give way to a dazzling spectacle of light which is further enhanced by the silhouette of the spirals. This expressive and highly decorative light fixture looks absolutely stunning during the day and casts a beautiful light when lit at night. Verner Panton’s Sprial Lamp is perfectly balanced and wonderful to look at; in any type of space. One of our favorite light fixtures; the Panton Spiral Lamp is hand made by Verpan in Denmark for Stardust Modern Design. Panton was trained as an architectural engineer in...

Sammen med ektefellen Jørgen Ditzel (1921–61) tegnet hun på 1950-tallet smykker for Georg Jensen samt møbler og tekstiler, som innbrakte sølvmedaljer ved Triennalene i Milano i 1951, 1954 og 1957 samt gullmedalje 1960; i 1956 mottok de Lunningprisen. Hennes produksjon var preget av menneskelige løsninger og en søken etter skjønnhet og harmoni, blant annet uttrykt i en varm og lysende farveskala. Fra 1970 til 1986 hadde hun tegnestue i London, deretter i København. Etter Jørgen Ditzels død fortsatte hun alene og vekket mot slutten av 1960-årene oppmerksomhet med møbler utført i polyester og glassfiber. For Unikavæv tegnet hun i 1965 tekstilkolleksjonen Hallingdal, som senere ble overtatt av Kvadrat i Ebeltoft. I 1987 stod hun for fargesetting av de danske IC3-togene – Ditzel har mottatt en rekke internasjonale og nasjonale designpriser....
