Originally designed in 1969, the ultra-modern Glass Globe Pendant Light is a result of Verner Panton’s ambition to create a lamp with the ability to mesmerize on-lookers and unite a room, regardless of whether it is suspended alone or in combination.
Featuring a sphere of crystal clear acrylic with five internal glass reflectors, suspended by delicate steel chains, the glass pendant introduces a monochrome variant to the otherwise colourful Globe collection. Striking from every angle, Globe is suited to an array of environments, whether suspended high above a winding staircase or low over a contemporary dining space.
Verner Panton is one of the iconic designers of the last century. Panton rose to fame designing the ‘Panton Chair’ for Vitra. Panton’s designs continue to be hugely popular and are still a big influence today on designers and architects.
Verner Panton was a student of Architecture at the Royal Art Academy in Copenhagen. Amongst Panton’s major achievements in the design and architecture world, is the design of the interior for the Spiegel publishing house in Hamburg.
