(Spy) A remarkable light for any environment. The Spion (spy) features a hemispherical, metallised shade which fixes directly to the wall or ceiling; when illuminated, the interior (red) is visible. Spion can also be mounted in groups as a wall or ceiling facing. The Spion (Spy) lamp consists of a circular base plate of aluminium sheeting which is partly polished, partly lacquered red and is mounted on the wall or ceiling. At the centre of the plate there is a fitting for the bulb and a hemispherical reflector which hides it. A hemispherical, reflecting plastic dome which is the same size as the base plate completes the design. The Spion is only noticeable as a lamp when switched on, because only then does the mirrored plastic dome provide a glimpse into its interior. As one of the most influential and remarkable designers of the era, Verner Panton has created objects, spaces and art. His original, space age designs have won numerous awards and been exhibited in museums and private collections around the world. His ideologies and design concepts are apparent and have had great influence on 21st century design.
