Manufacturer: Louis Poulsen
Designer: Verner Panton
In 1971, Verner Panton joined hands with Louis Poulsen to develop a lamp that would become an icon: the domed Panthella, designed to shape light and gently illuminate its surroundings to create an ideal ambience. Demand for the organic, elegant form has since only grown, prompting Louis Poulsen to develop the Panthella MINI in 2016 to allow the sculptural shape to fit smaller spaces. Now, to fully bring Panton’s original vision of a metal Panthella to life, Louis Poulsen is releasing the compact Panthella MINI in a chrome finish.
The new chrome Panthella MINI was inspired by the chrome finish Panton himself selected for the original table and floor versions of the Panthella design. Like the colour versions of the Panthella MINI released in 2016, the chrome Panthella MINI shade is also made of metal. As the chrome mirrors and playfully distorts its surroundings, the Panthella MINI becomes an even more integral part of a given space, enriching and enlivening any interior.
“When Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella lamp with Louis Poulsen in 1971, he wanted the design to have a metal shade, which was technologically impossible at the time,” says Rasmus Markholt, Design Manager at Louis Poulsen. “In 2016, we were able to make his vision a reality when we first launched the Panthella MINI with metal shades painted in bold colours from Panton’s own palette. Now, working closely with the Panton family, we have pushed Panton’s vision even further with an actual metallised finish. So the design retains its iconic form, but also gains an entirely new expression and becomes engaged in conversation with everything and everyone around it.”
The Panthella MINI provides adjustable, high-quality light with built-in-LED technology. Stepless dimming offers easy adjustability from 15 to 100%, and the light can be set to turn on at the desired brightness level. The light also features a timer that can be set to turn the lamp off after 4 or 8 hours.
Its smaller format, with a compact 250 mm diameter and 335 mm height, makes for easy placement on window sills, shelves, tables or other limited surfaces. The new shades are white on the inside and direct the light downwards, where it is reflected up and out into the room from the trumpet-shaped foot.
The fixture emits a soft and comfortable illumination. The metal version directs the light directly downwards and creates a soft and comfortable illumination due to the inner white painted shade and the reflection from the trumphet shaped stem.
