At Louis Poulsen, we create design to shape light. Behind every lamp lies craftsmanship and carefully thought through details with only one purpose: To complement the surroundings with the right light. Light that gives a pleasant atmosphere and make both the room and the people in it, beautiful.
This autumn offers both new and old classics – experience them here:
Panthella MINI is a smaller version of Verner Panton’s classic Panthella lamp from 1971. Panthella MINI has painted metal shades in eight eye-catching colours from Verner Panton’s own colour spectrum. Additionally, Panthella MINI is available in white, black and opal acrylic.
Verner Panton originally developed the Panthella in partnership with Louis Poulsen in 1971. His idea was to have Panthella launched with a metal shade, but this was not possible from a technological perspective at that time. That is why what is being launched now is a world first, based on Verner Panton’s original drawings. See colours
The colours are drawn from the last project Verner Panton was working on before his death in 1998: 'Lyset og Farven' ('Light and Colour') exhibition hosted at Trapholt Museum of Modern Art in Kolding, Denmark, which took the form of a complete installation comprising eight rooms in different colours, where the furniture, light fittings and fabrics, created by Verner Panton over a period of 50 years, were framed in a holistic presentation of colours and light.
Colour and imagination were two key elements in the world of Verner Panton, and Louis Poulsen has chosen the new colours for the Panthella MINI from the spectrum that Verner Panton himself had selected for the remarkable universe that was 'Lyset og Farven'.
Panthella MINI features three light intensities and the latest LED technology. The new metal shades are white on the inside and direct the light downwards, from where it is reflected up and out into the room from the trumpet-shaped foot.
Louis Poulsen’s miniature version of Verner Panton’s iconic Panthella measures 250mm in diameter, while the original version from 1971 measured 400mm.

The fixture emits a soft and comfortable illumination. The metal version directs the light directly downwards and creates a soft and comfortable illumination due to the inner white painted shade and the reflection from the trumpet shaped stem. The acrylic version leaves a diffuse comfortable light atmosphere due to the colour and the downward reflection from the inner shade.

Verner Panton (1926-1998) is famous for his inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense for color, shape, light function and space. Over the course of his career, Panton introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.
With remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about light function and influence. Verner had a very clear attitude regarding his work and regarding shape, color and function. At the same time, he made conscious and brave use of different materials.
