New Louis Poulsen Panthella Mini Chrome Table

Louis Poulsen

Back in 1971 Verner Panton worked with Louis Poulsen to develop the iconic Panthella. The design was created to shape light and gently illuminate its surroundings to create an ideal ambience. The Panthella range has become one of Louis Poulsen’s best selling lights and in 2016 they developed the Panthella Mini to fit smaller spaces.

Now Louis Poulsen has released a Chrome finish of the compact Panthella Mini to bring Panton’s original vision of a metal Panthella to life. The chrome shade mirrors and playfully distorts its surroundings.

The Panthella Mini features a built in LED and has an inline dimmer included on the cable. The light also features a timer that can be set to turn the lamp off after 4 or 8 hours.

The Panthella Mini’s smaller design makes it perfect on window sills, shelves, tables and other small surfaces.

“When Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella lamp with Louis Poulsen in 1971, he wanted the design to have a metal shade, which was technologically impossible at the time.”

“In 2016, we were able to make his vision a reality when we first launched the Panthella MINI with metal shades painted in bold colours from Panton’s own palette. Now, working closely with the Panton family, we have pushed Panton’s vision even further with an actual metallised finish. So the design retains its iconic form, but also gains an entirely new expression and becomes engaged in conversation with everything and everyone around it.”

New in time for spring!

10 April 2015 Permalink

A trend which never fails to impress is Metallic details, added to an interior they create an element of luxury or as a statement piece within a space. Tom Dixon is well known for his metal themed designs and does not disappoint with the new Melt collection released this month – just in time for the Milan Euroluce exhibition!

Tom Dixon Melt pendants are available in full and mini sizes, chrome, copper and gold which are popular colours from Tom Dixon.

The unique feature of these pendants is their transformation when lit. Turned off the pendants resemble their iconic Copper shade and Bronze shade with a ‘melted’ appearance to the form. However when the Melt is lit they resemble molten metal, the copper and gold finishes take on a warm and fiery look, the chrome similar to silver being melted for jewellery. This new collection is perfect for someone wanting to update their interiors for the metallic trend.
