Design by Verner Panton,1959.
Sometimes the simplest things are the most lasting and memorable, the Topan pendant being a prime example. It was the first mass produced lamp by Verner Panton, later to be followed by the FlowerPot. Topan's simplicity and coolness proves to be a lasting value. Topan was originally designed for the hotel and restaurant Astoria in Trondheim, Norway, in 1960. Here, Panton used his textile designs Geomety I to IV for floors, walls and ceilings in order to give the room a uniform image. The Topan pendants hung all over, dividing large rooms into smaller and more intimate spaces.
The Topan Pendant Light is composed of aluminum shades with a lacquered finish. Available in orange, white, black, yellow, red, light blue, green turquoise, brushed aluminum or black with gold interior. Ships with 9 feet of fabric cord. Most colors ship with a white canopy. Black and brushed aluminum finishes ship with a black canopy.

Verner Panton was an inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colours, shapes, light function and room.
Over the course of his career, Verner Panton (1926-1998) introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.
With a remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of the form, Verner Panton worked successfully to create a new set of theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surroundings.
Verner Panton in his own words:
"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of usning colors. By experimenting with lighting, colors, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their fantasy imagination and make their surroundings more exciting".
