1. FLOWERPOT PENDANT

 

&tradition-Flowerpot-pendant-lamp-reedition-Verner-PantonVERNER PANTON, 1971. This series of two lamps and a suspension was designed in the 70's while to appease the student revolts of the time, the movement Flower Power was born... FLOWERPOTso it is a balanced and well thought-out mixture between the softness of the round design of the time of its creation and a maddening modernity. "Less is More" again, or simply two spheres nested harmoniously into another, with the result simplicity and perfection. Yet of the lamps we saw, thousands, hundreds of thousands. But the lamp Verner Panton's is one that we secretly dream of at night, one that we would like to have a copy of on our nightstand or our desk, so that she can enlighten us.

It was indeed the first piece that G.T Rietveld designed to offer comfort and quality product to the market of the "Mass Design"design. We remember this singular shape, however nothing distinguished it from others in terms of coating. Fortunately for us, CASSINA and Bertjan Pot have had the wonderful idea to collaborate on this project to reissue this year. The design of the fabric of each room is unique, and the combination of triangles is never repeated. That is why, thanks to its propantion in the limited edition, this piece takes the status of the work of art and the unique. Thus, due to their high artistic value and their specific creative character, all the models in the collection Cassina are protected by copyright. Lucky are those who own one of its design reissues.

This avant-garde lines lamp has been copied many times and it is still. Le Corbusier had the logic of the beautiful geometry and knew how to reveal the basic forms to the public: "Our eyes are made to see shapes through light: (...) cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders or pyramids are the perfect primary forms that it reveals to us. " Because in what constitutes the Parliament lamp, everything is just a matter of primary forms associated. They give birth to a design perenne and remembered. And then, this genius, who thought to combine direct and indirect light with an adjustable Lampshade. If you are looking for the ornament, know that it is, in any case here, a crime.
