The Iconic Muuto Under The Bell


David Village Lighting loves Iconic designs and the Muuto Under The Bell is one of our favourites.


We love the multi-functional pendant lamp as the design not only provides an ambient light but also enhances the acoustics of the room.

A large sheet of recycled plastic felt is heated in a mould and pressed into shape. Available in black and grey, the lamp blends effortlessly into open spaces. The Bell is an example of modern design with hints to Scandinavian values.


Muuto


“Under The Bell is not just a lampshade. When hung over a table or in an open environment it creates its own space within the bigger space. That way, the lamp embraces and shelters the table and people beneath it - both physically and in a more abstract sense. The recycled plastic felt even absorbs sound and helps improve the acoustics of your room.”

Verpan- Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Verner Panton’s Birth

22 August 2016 Permalink

Verpan


 To mark the 90th anniversary of Verner Panton’s birth, Danish furniture and lamp manufacturers, Verpan, are launching new brass versions of two of their iconic designs; Fun and VP Globe lamp.


Verner Panton studied at the RoyalDanishAcademy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen before setting up his own design studio in 1955. He was a unique person with a special feel for colours, shapes and light function. Throughout his career he introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any other Scandinavian designer. 


Verpan


Verpan Fun Pendant


Many people regard the Fun pendant as one of Verner Panton’s greatest masterpieces. Designed in 1964 the pendant lamp has held a wealth of stories and now another one begins as Verpan have released a Brass edition of the Fun 10DM pendant.


Verpan


Panton worked on designing a pendant lamp for many years, one which would bring out the best in an interior. Panton firstly considered making it out of plastic which was the ‘in’ material at the time however it did not give him the look he was after. On a holiday in Malaysia, Panton discovered a new material; delicate seashells which had the perfect, pearly texture. At the same time as his excitement of finding the perfect material for his pendant he also realised that he could do a good dead. The united Nations were looking for ways to generate new jobs in developing countries and Panton could help as both then and now the delicately processed seashells are cut to size and prepared for hanging by hand. The idea behind the Verpan Fun lamp was to bring a diffused light which would optimise a coloured interior. The shade is made with a delicate chrome frame with four layers of tightly fitted seashells disc’s, forming a sculpture in any room.  


Verpan


In collaboration with the designer’s widow, Marianne Panton, Verpan present Fun with a brass-finish frame. The Brass framed Fun lamp is and alternative to the existing design, adding a warmer glow and a more suitable light for Scandinavian interiors.

Verpan VP Globe


Another of Verner Panton’s most iconic designs is the VP Globe. The VP Globe’s beauty lies within is contrasts in materials, colours and shapes. Along with the Fun pendant, to mark the 90th anniversary of Panton’s birth Verpan are releasing a brass version.


After discussions with the designer’s widower, Verpan decided upon a brass finish as an alternative, as the golden tones would interact decoratively with the pendant’s red and blue spotlights.


Verpan


The VP Globe consists of five reflectors spray painted in red and blue, suspended on delicate brass finished chains. The pendant looks like a functional lighting item which when switched on, brings to mind a hovering UFO and when off, resembles an oversized soap bubble. Panton’s vision was to design a lamp which would catch the eye and unite a room whether hung alone or in a cluster making the pendant an ideal choice to be placed over a dinning room table or a hallway.


Panton designed the VP Globe in 1970 for the German furniture fair, Visiona. Despite the positive feedback it took seven year before it went into production.


Verpan


The ‘Globe’ could sum up Panton’s life as even as a young man, he was a globetrotter. Travelling through Europe, Panton went on a quest for inspiration from designs around the world, meeting various furniture and lamp manufactures. The more he travelled the more projects came his way becoming a highly respected name on the international design scene.


In 1961, Panton settled in Basel, where he set up his own design studio, this was to be Panton’s workplace until his death in 1998.

Louis Poulsen PH5

18 March 2016 Permalink

For a limited time only, we are discounting the iconic PH5 suspension in white. This offer is only availble until April 23rd! Hurry...before time runs out!


Louis Poulsen PH5 Suspension


Designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958, the PH5 has become a well loved and universally recognised interior design feature. The suspension light came about originally to facilitate the use of any kind of light bulb, this was at a time when manufacturers would frequently change the size and shape of their light bulbs. Forcing design houses to adapt their styles to fit the ever changing incandescent lamp. Henningsen with his radical opinions created a light that didn’t have to change.


“For a generation I have believed that consideration for the consumer and common sense would prevail, but now I have become a fatalist. I have accepted fate, and with Louis Poulsen´s permission I have designed a PH fixture which can be used with any kind of light source, Christmas lights and 100 W metal-filament bulbs!”


Henningsen created the PH5 with the consumer in mind. The iconic shades were angled to prevent glare from any viewpoint. Small red and blue shades were inserted within to subdue the bright light, the colours were cleverly chosen because our eyes are least sensitive to these on the colour spectrum.


Since 1958 the PH5 family has grown. Louis Poulsen then added five new glossy colours on its 50th anniversary and renamed it the PH50. Four more matt colours were introduced to PH5, as of 2013.


The PH5 is one of the best selling items by Louis Poulsen, widely used in domestic and commercial interior design schemes. Its iconic design has made it the feature light of choice amongst designers and enthusiasts alike.
