Panthella is one of the best-loved lights from the Verner Panton archives. Originally designed in 1971, its organic curves are a beautiful example of some of the sinuous silhouettes from the era. As with all Panton designs, it wasn't just about aesthetics. Panton intended to create a light where both the stand and the shade served as a reflector, ideas that would transform Panthella into a glowing totem of light. He succeeded and the successive finishes that have followed have only built on this legacy. In 2021, Louis Poulsen will add a new metal brass finish, reinterpreting the icon with new glamour and warmth.
