Concept

Boasting a singular spherical silhouette, the Topan Pendant Lamp was truly ahead of its time. Conceived by Verner Panton, one of Denmark’s most experimental Modernist architects and designers, the Topan was a precursor to the Pop Art Movement. A sculptural gem that not only provides illumination, it also acts as a decorative element either alone or in clusters. Adding a cosy intimacy to any interior.
Originally designed for the Astoria Hotel and Restaurant in Trondheim, Norway, the Topan became an integral design element in Panton’s approach to visually immersive environments, saturated with vivid colours, patterns and provocative furnishings. It was also the predecessor to the FlowerPot lamps that followed, which together with Topan are design siblings.
“Panton was a pioneer in designing simple yet striking shapes that are iconic and timeless in their appeal,” notes &tradition Brand Manager Martin Kornbek Hansen. “The Topan was Panton’s first mass-produced lamp and one that embodies his unique talent for capturing an idea so succinctly. Seen in this striking expression of such a simple geometric equation.”
