Originally designed in 1969, the Spiral Pendant was re-issued in 2004, and in the process introduced an entirely new audience to the modern lamps by the renowned designer, Verner Panton. An innovative talent of 20th-century design, Panton transformed theories about how lighting should work and influence its surroundings. He also pushed materials and technologies to their limits, as demonstrated with his Spiral Pendant. Suspended from a four-ring metal frame are clusters of spirals that slowly twist, mixing reflections with shadows and light. The result fulfills Panton’s desire to provoke the imagination.

Even if Verner Panton's creative output was reduced to the eponymous Panton Chair, his name would still be assured in the pantheon of modern design. With the Panton Chair, the first example of single-formed injection moulded plastic seating, Panton succeeded in creating one of the most daring and famous chair designs of the twentieth century.

Panton first established himself at the forefront of avant-garde design with furniture based on extravagant, geometric forms and use of strong colors, such as the Cone Chair of 1958. Along with the Panton Chair, which was designed in the early 1960's, but was not put into production until 1967 due to its technical challenges, these designs cemented Verner Panton's reputation as a designer of an original and uncompromising approach.
