A throwback to the irriplaceable scandinavian Master, Verner Panton, who was a genious in the design of lighting and furniture. Flowerpot VP3 The table lamp was designed by Verner Panton in 1969, and is part of the Flowerpot series, which in addition to table lamps also consists of beautiful, playful pendants.

Flowerpot VP3 The table lamp is a modern design classic, which with its simple and elegant expression fits into any modern home decor. The inspiration for the lamp was found in the 60s and 70s Flower Power era, which was characterized by peace, love and harmony. The VP3 table lamp is available in several beautiful colors, which gives your home a unique and stylish lighting.

The lamp consists of two circles, which hover over each other in an elegant way. The diameter of the upper circle is exactly twice as large as the lower circle, which helps to give the lamp a fine balance. Flowerpot VP3 The table lamp provides a soft and concentrated light, which simply helps to emphasize your home’s modern and cozy style.

Inspiration from Nature: the Praying Mantis

A highlight – in the truest sense of the word – is also “BS1” of the Mantis Collection, sprired by the praying mantis insect. The luminaire from the 1960s shines in the newly reissued edition in trendy metallic paint finishes ranging from gold to copper. So elegant, of great finesse, this floor lamp defies the loies of weightlessness.

Bernard Schottlander was born in Mainz, Germany in 1924 and moved to England in 1939. After serving with the British Army in India, he learnt to weld and took a course in Sculpture at Leeds College of Art and subsequently – with the help of a bursary – at the Anglo-French art centre in St John’s Wood. Bernard Schottlander described himself as a designer for interiors and a sculptor for exteriors.

After several successful years as an industrial designer, Bernard Schottlander chose to concentrate on sculpture. In the late 1950’s he established a workshop in North London where he was ably assisted for many years by George Nash. From 1965 he taught metalwork at St Martins School of Art. In the same year he was part of the group show Six Artists at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and in the following year (1966) had his first solo show at the Hamilton Galleries, London. Movement is intrinsic to all of Schottlander’s work : an artist, an engineer and in no small measure a handyman, he devised a clever system of counterweights combined with a series of strong and flexible metal bars. The shade also is unique of its kind. Like an acrobat suspended in mid-air, it is made from aluminium using spinning and chasing techniques that are a part of the metalworker’s inventory of skills, but to which he has brought his sculptor’s eye to create a helical movement in which the symmetrical and the asymmetrical are in opposition.

Timeless Design Objects

Often, now in winter, you notice that somewhere in the room there is still a source of light missing. Small table lamps and practical floor lamps are particularly well suited in this case to spotlight furniture or brighten up dark corners. New in the range of architare is, for example, the playful “Cap Table Lamp” by Timeless Design Objects, which convinces with beautiful colors and an exciting mix of different materials. The lampshare is made of painted or planted steel held up by a white glass base, playfully reversed compared to the usual order of lamps.
