The Pendant Light Moon Lamp Designed in 1960 by Verner Panton.

Year: 1960

The MOON LAMP rang in a new creation style of Verner Panton in 1960. Already in 1955 the designer had conceived droplights who consisted of a system of ring-shaped reflectors, with partly different profiles. These single elements were connected by threads with each other. For the Kom-igen inn Verner Panton had developed several revised versions in 1958. Also the light body of the Moon Lamp existed of ring-shaped lamellae, ten in total. Indeed, these did not consist any more horizontally, but for the first time vertically. Greater growing from inside after outside, the single parts were hung up flexibly. In this manner the professional work covers the light source and reflects the light at the same time. First from white varnished metal by Louis Poulsen made, the Moon Lamp was produced out of dyed, white plastic by vitra until 2009. In 2010 VerPan is supposed to illuminate the lighting scene with this model, in America also known as Visor . Like the full moon the Moon Lamp donates a very absorbed, very harmonious light. Anyway her form and name remind of this pleasent heavenly body.
