Verner Panton created Panthella in collaboration with Louis Poulsen in 1971. Today, Panthella is recognized as one of Panton’s most significant design icons with its recognizable organic shape. The top shade directs the exceptional glare-free light downward, so it in turn is reflected by the trumpet shaped base. The Panthella 250 Portable Lamp is a portable version of the popular Panthella Table Lamp, with a shade that has a diameter of 250 mm. The portable lamp has a translucent white opal shade, which provides a diffused ambient light, while directing some of the glare-free light downward onto the trumpet shaped base, that is designed to reflect some of the light upwards.
