The Topan Pendant light was designed by Verner Panton, who was inspired by the minimalistic side of design that was positively ruling the trendier parts of the twentieth century. He drew the basic form of this design by choosing the most simplistic form – the circle – and articulating the actual light fixture design in a half-elliptical sphere that hangs from a 3 meter cord. The three dimensional interpretation of this design definitely draws the eye by making the overall style look effortlessly elegant and sophisticated.
The Topan Pendant light was specifically designed to complement the interior design of the hotel and restaurant Astoria in Trondheim back in 1960. Therefore, Panton made sure that the design of this pendent light was sufficiently classic and complementary to the textile designs, geometry, walls and even ceilings of the Astoria enterprise.
The Topan Pendant light is available in a number of designs and aesthetics. It comes in grey beige, white, dark green and even deep red color scheme. Its aesthetic versatility and excellent pragmatics make this light one of the best in the &tradition collection.
