or Call to Order

Designed by Verner Panton in 1959, the &Tradition Topan VP6 pendant is his second-ever design and the first lamp he mass-produced, preced­ing the iconic Flow­er­pot. With a sculp­tural silhou­ette, Topan serves as both an illu­mi­nat­ing source and a deco­ra­tive element, creat­ing a targeted atmos­phere indi­vid­u­ally or in clusters.

Initially avail­able in Matt Black, the Topan pendant has expanded its color options to include the new Vermil­lion Red, reflec­tive Chrome, and the neutral Grey Beige tone. This expan­sion broad­ens the aesthetic possi­bil­i­ties for light­ing design and pays homage to Panton’s endur­ing legacy in modern design.


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.
