The humoristic and optimistic lamp was clearly inspired by the flower power movement in the mid-60s. The movement was all about peace, love, and harmony, and it was driven by a generation that questioned the formal values that cost them personal freedom. The so-called flower children rebelled against the norms, materials, and family ideals of the generation before them. The symbol of the movement was a flower, and Verner Panton managed to capture the essence of this period in his Flowerpot lamp, creating an iconic tribute to the flower power movement.
His colour selection propelled him to success, and the lamp quickly became popular. When you look at how many Flowerpot lamps are still in use in private and commercial interior design, it isn’t hard to understand why it eventually became known as “the Volkswagen of lighting”.
Flowerpot meets trending colours
The wonderful lamp is available in a variety of beautiful colours, but at Lampemesteren, we wanted our own Flowerpot in a colour of our choosing. To realise this goal, we collaborated with &tradition
to create our own version of the Flowerpot VP3 Table Lamp
and the Flowerpot VP1 Pendant
in a modern, dusty green.
The latest addition to the family is the Flowerpot VP9 Portable table lamp
, which is also available in Soft Green. The iconic design has been paired with modern technology, and the lamp is now fitted with a built-in LED element and a USB-rechargeable battery. The lamp also has an IP44 rating, so you can bring the portable light out onto the terrace with you.
Choosing a colour is never easy, but after thorough consideration and in-depth research into the current trends in interior design, we settled on a green colour with yellow undertones, inspired by the rolling hills. It looks like a gift from the earth and fits perfectly into our societal interest in selfcare, wellbeing, and reuniting with nature – our desire to bring nature into our homes to create spaces where we can retreat and recharge.
The new lamp adds a touch of personality to your interior design, all the while contributing a light that doesn’t blind, no matter whether you place it in a private or commercial context. The neutral, sophisticated colour cultivates a feeling of peace and quiet, which is easily integrated into Scandinavian décor.
At Lampemesteren, we have no doubt that the combination of the calm colour and Verner Panton’s glorious Flowerpot design will become a hit in its own right.See the gorgeous Flowerpot VP3 Table Lamp in Soft Green here
