Design by Verner Panton, 1959.
Sometimes the simplest things are the most lasting and memorable. The shapely Topan Pendant was the very first lamp by Verner Panton that went into mass production, and its simplicity and coolness prove to be a lasting value. Originally designed for the hotel/restaurant Astoria in Trondheim, Norway where Panton used his textile designs Geomety I to IV for the floors, walls and ceilings, the Topan pendants hung all over, dividing large rooms into smaller and more intimate spaces.
Perfectly suited for personal spaces, or grouped in multiples for larger public spaces, the Topan Pendant Light provides direct and ambient illumination. Aluminum shade with a lacquered finish is available in your choice of Yellow, Orange, Red, Light Blue, Green, Turquoise, Black or White. The cord color coordinates with the shade color. White canopies are included for all colors except Black which ships with a black canopy.

Designer: Verner Panton
Verner Panton was an inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colours, shapes, light function and room.
Over the course of his career Verner Panton (1926-1998) introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.
With a remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of the form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surroundings.
Verner Panton in his own words:
"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of usning colors. By experimenting with lighting, colors, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their fantasy imagination and make their surroundings more exciting".
