Flow­er­Pot Table Lamp, VP4

c. 1968/2020

by Verner Panton
for &Tradition

Flow­er­Pot table lamp VP4 designed by Verner Panton is the most recent rein­tro­duc­tion from Danish brand &tradition. The Flow­er­pot lamp series became synony­mous with the Flower Power move­ment from the late 60s. Reflect­ing a break from conven­tion to embrace a more open, modern mental­ity that promoted peace and harmony. Such was the mindset of its designer, Verner Panton. One of the most forward-think­ing talents of his time. The Flow­er­pot series consists of several differ­ent models, includ­ing three pendants and three table lamps — all in a wide range of colors.


Verner Panton

Denmark (1926–1998)

Verner Panton started out as a painter before studying architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. After an apprenticeship with architect/designer Arne Jacobsen, Panton pursued a path in furniture and interior design, where he became famous for his avant-garde designs. Such as chairs with no legs and a sofa placed vertically against the wall. In the ’60s and ’70s, his passion for designing entire environments led to immersive interiors featuring his hypnotic patterns and futuristic designs for furniture, lighting, wallpapers, posters, and rugs.

Panton’s pioneering use of materials, colors, and shapes earned him a reputation as a visionary. In recognition of his lifetime achievement, he was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Dannebrog Order in 1998 by the Queen of Denmark.

The Flower Pot Lamp became emblematic of the Flower Power peace movement during the ’60s. With its range of vivid colors, it is just as synonymous with modernity now as it was when launched in 1968.
