New version of VP GLOBE
Panton’s ambition with the VP GLOBE was to design a lamp that could catch the eye and consolidate a room, regardless of whether it hung alone or in clusters.
An eternal experiment
Experimenting with, and implementing new materials is totally in line with Panton’s philosophy when creating furniture and interiors. So the two smoked glass reflectors – shaped like two ‘deep plates’ – were designed in close collaboration with Panton’s wife, Marianne.
Whenever Panton came up with a great idea or was commissioned to tackle an interior decoration project, he had no problem using new materials in an existing design, if he believed that they were better suited to a project or a particular occasion.
The same is now true of VP Globe and its smoked glass reflector.
An oversized soap bubble
VP Globe comprises three polished aluminium reflectors in the complementary colours of red and blue, and two in smoked glass, hung decoratively on delicate chains. The pendant comes across as a functional lighting item, which, when switched off, resembles an oversized soap bubble. Switched on, it looks like a hovering UFO.
Verpan will be launching VP Globe in Scandinavia, Europe, Asia and the United States in autumn 2017.
