VERNER PANTON, 1969
SPIEGEL was made famous for its role in Verner Panton’s complete interior installation of Der Spiegel Publishing House in Hamburg in 1969.
The SPIEGEL lamp is an avant-garde statement piece for the modern contemporary home. Typically for a Panton design, the lamp can be mounted either individually or as part of a system - on the wall or in the ceiling - enabling the user to create a stunning single-piece statement or a dramatic large-scale installation, depending on mood, personality and space.
The large quadratic lamp has a circular indentation in the center, which holds the light source, which is then concealed under a hemispheric shade that breaks and softens the light and banish glare. What Panton created with SPIEGEL was an architectural and sculptural art piece that doubles as a lamp providing a beautiful and soft ambient light.
SPIEGEL is available in a brushed aluminum finish.

Verner Panton (1926-1998) was an inspirational and colourful 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, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surrounding.
