by Verner Panton, 1969 / 1970

More a light-fontaine that a pendant light – the SPIRAL SP3 in silver impresses every spectator. Countless spirals, made from acrylic, form three equal clusters. One below the other they hide the light source in their inside. With a sensational height of 2.20 metres and a diameter of 48 centimeters the pendant can be placed nearly everywhere – either in halls or directly above the floor.

Spiral SP3

The SPIRAL SP3 is the tallest member of the SPIRAL family, designed by Verner Panton in 1969 / 1970. SP is an abbreviation of SPIRAL, the number 3 means, that the light exists of three similar clusters, one below the other. Manufactured from acrylic, in former times cellidor material, the spirals of each ring have different lenghts. They are connected with each other and the canopy by transparent synthetic strings. SPIRAL SP3 is the headliner in any space, no matter what colour you prefer: multicolor, silver or gold.

The Danish Designer Verner Panton conceptualized this lighting, consting of different models, for the Cologne Furniture Fair in 1970, more specifically, for the Visiona 2 exhibition, for which an entire ship was redesigned. A year later, Panton was commissioned to set up a restaurant in Aahaus, Denmark. Here again, in the Varna Palace, a neoclassical building on the east coast of the Jutland peninsula, the SPIRAL SP3 silver was used. Panton combined the SPIRAL pendant lights with a whole range of his designs: Amoebe, Amoebe Highback, Illumesa, Cloverleaf Sofa, Ball Type H and VP Globe pendants as well as the Welle lounge combination. All of these Panton designs are available in TAGWERC Design STORE.

In addition to silver, there are the SPIRAL suspensions in gold and multicolor. Besides, the design interior specialist TAGWERC offers to extend or shorten these drop-lights on request.
