Posted on September 06 2016
Verner Panton (13 February 1926 – 5 September 1998) is considered one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colors. His style was very "1960s" but regained popularity at the end of the 20th century; as of 2004, Panton's most well-known furniture models are still in production (at Vitra, among others).
The Fun 1DM Pendant comes from one of Panton's largest collections he has ever designed, the Fun Family. Fun is made of natural mother of pearl shells that are held to the highest quality standards and hung on stainless steel rings. The fixture has a sense of movement and life. When there is a light breeze, or you open your door, a beautiful sound is created from the shells knocking gently against each other. The Fun 1DM is a versatile fixture that can fit in over your dining room table, in your foyer, or anywhere in your home. Some assembly required.
A tiered shell chandelier provides a lovely lightening touch to a dark wood dining setting. It manages a commanding presence in a small, enclosed space without competing with a spectacular view. The FUN 1 DM brings a sculptural sophistication to any interior, either alone or grouped as a dramatic chandelier cluster. reminiscent of Fun, sea, beach, sun, light, sound, sand. the infinite.
