FlowerPot VP1 Pendant Lamp
by Verner Panton, 1968
from And Tradition
In 1968 the students' revolts in Paris, Rome and the United States were overthrowing stiff, old values, initiating the Flower Power-generation of peace, love and harmony. Same year, Stanley Kubrick pictured the year 2001, featuring the Verner Panton Chair, and man was soon to set foot on the moon. In the world of design, a colorful, playful pendant hung in restaurants and exhibitions, and very soon in everybody's homes. This FlowerPot Pendant with its two semi-circular spheres facing each other has long proven its lasting design quality and is just as much a synonym of our time. The diameter of the upper sphere is twice as large as the lower one, creating a perfectly balanced form. No wonder the FlowerPot Pendant Lamp won Guten Form Bundespreis in 1972.
