Spiegel Wall and Ceiling Lamp (2023)
Made by Verpan
Spiegel was made famous for its role in Verner Panton’s complete interior installation of Der Spiegel Publishing House in Hamburg in 1969.
The Spiegel lamp is an avant-garde statement piece for the modern contemporary home. Typically for a Panton design, the lamp can be mounted either individually or as part of a system - on the wall or in the ceiling - enabling the user to create a stunning single-piece statement or a dramatic large-scale installation, depending on mood, personality and space.
The large quadratic lamp has a circular indentation in the center, which holds the light source, which is then concealed under a hemispheric shade that breaks and softens the light and banish glare. What Panton created with SPIEGEL was an architectural and sculptural art piece that doubles as a lamp providing a beautiful and soft ambient light.
Verner Panton was one of the 20th century's most celebrated architects, industrial designers and textile designers. His work is characterized by expressive, curved forms, vivid colors and bold patterns.
Some of Panton's other most famous designs include the Cone Chair, the Heart Chair, and the Cloverleaf Sofa. Rarify is an authorized dealer for authentic Verpan products, including many of these iconic works.
