Flowerpot lights, popularly known as flowerpot lamps, belong to a series of lighting by Danish furniture label &tradition, produced under license according to a design by the architect Verner Panton from 1968. The Flowerpot lighting family consists of the pendant lamps Flowerpot VP1, Flowerpot VP2 and Flowerpot VP7 as well as the table lamps Flowerpot VP3 and Flowerpot VP4. A Flowerpot garden and outdoor light is currently not in production.
All Flowerpot luminaires are characterized by a simple and well thought-out basic construction. The lamp body of the Flowerpot lamp is composed of two hemispheres. The upper, larger hemisphere holds the illuminant, while the lower, just half as large hemisphere facing the upper and is held by an externally invisible metal frame in position. The small hemisphere conceals the bulb and provides a pleasant indirect light. The inner surfaces of the hemispheres are coated white and serve as a light reflector. The sophisticated design of Flowerpot brought designer Verner Panton the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The Flowerpot lamps by &tradition, designed by Verner Panton in 1968, were created during the happy and carefree era of the Flower Power Movement. Verner Panton liked to arrange the pendant lamp in groups of ten or more lamps. But even only one Flowerpot lamp looks like a small light object.
With a variety of available colours, the Flowerpot light offers the best possible variations in interior design. This allows Flowerpot lights to match the colour scheme of their environment. Design intentional accents are created when the flowerpot light picks up the colouration of an object in the room, such as a painting, carpet, tile, etc. Half a century after the first design, the Flowerpot lighting series is now more popular than ever and is undoubtedly a classic in design history.
