by Verner Panton, 1959

The Topan VP6 pendant lamp by &tradition, the disco-ball of designer Verner Panton, dates from the year in which the first nightclubs opened. At the same time Topan VP6 was the first lamp by Verner Panton produced in series. In 1959 Panton installed Topan VP6 suspension lamps at the Hotel Astoria in Trondheim / Norway for the first time. The basic form of an aluminum globe with a diameter of 21 cm, brushed or painted, is open downwards. In this way the light is focused and exits as a cone.

Topan VP6

Unlike the other lamps by Verner Panton, the Topan VP6 pendant lamp does not donate an indirect, but a direct light. Therefore, it is advisable to hang the lamp as low as possible. For an individually appropriate height Topan VP6 is supplied with a three meter long fabric cable, which matches the colour of the globe.

Topan VP6 can be equipped with a bulb with a maximum of 40 watts. In this way, the design classic provides a pleasant mood light and individual areas can be specifically emphasized. Thus, with each of 18 white and yellow Topan VP6 lamps were used in the BMW Car Museum in Munich / Germany as a spot on a yellow BMW Isetta with a white convertible top, built in 1955. At the IBM booth at the Cebit in Hannover / Germany the IT world exchanged expertise under Topan VP6 lamps. We mean: Topan VP6 – always a round thing.
