by Verner Panton, 1977

The Onion table lamp in white rests on a circular base plate, also made of white painted metal. Thereby manufacturer Verpan is giving a safe footing to the Onion’s bulbous body. Despite all, the stability of the stand never feels clumsy. Because size and shape of the base pick up on the bottom border of the Onion lamp corpus and thus form a perfect conclusion. The onion table lamp in white looks appealing and unique when switched off. When folded in, the Onion table lamp is effective and gains many times its three-dimensionality.
