DESIGN ICON: FLOWERPOT VP-1 BY &TRADITION

Its 70’s style, its colors and its shape have turned the Flowerpot hanging lamp into a design icon. This lamp was designed in 1968 by Verner Panton, during the happy and carefree era of the Flower Power, on the same year of the student riots that took place in Paris, Rome and the United States.

It was then when the Danish designer created it, thinking about a group of ten or more to recreate the feeling of a garden. The designer was considered a visionary in the 60’s and the 70’s because of how he used of the materials, the patterns and the colors.

This hanging lamp consists of two semicircular spheres located one in front of the other. The light comes from the largest sphere and descends over the sides of the smaller one, which hides within it a light source that becomes a spotlight. This light provides indirect lighting that is perfect for general lighting.

The Flowerpot pendant lamp was created by the &Tradition lighting brand and became an identity trade. In 1972, it received the Gute Form Design Award, Germany’s official design award, and it is still very much in style.
