Most people are familiar with Danish designer Verner Panton for his S-shaped chair and op-art environments, but his Fun Lamps (1964) are equally iconoclastic. One of the most sought-after modern lighting designs at auction today, the Fun Lamps give modernism a decorative dimension without being cute – think of them as functional jewelry for interiors. The cascading design is composed of hand-cut mother of pearl discs, which make wonderful musical sounds when stirred by a breeze. These lamps have an ethereal presence, with light shining through the discs to produce a warm, opulent glow. Bulb (not included): incandescent E26. Made in Denmark.
- Each lamp is stamped with Panton’s signature and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
- UL Listed and suitable for commercial use.
- Ships flat to avoid tangling; assembly required.
