Boasting a singular spherical silhouette, the Topan Pendant was truly ahead of its time. Conceived by Verner Panaton, one of Denmark's most experimental Modernist architects and designers, the Topan was a precursor to the Pop Art Movement. A sculptural gem that no only provides illumination, it also acts as a decorative element either alone or in clusters, adding a cozy 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 colors, patterns and provocative furnishings. It was also the predecessor to the FlowerPot lamps that followed, which together with Topan are design siblings.
The Topan shade is spun into shape from a single piece of aluminum and subsequently lacquered. The spinning is performed by highly skilled craftsmen who have decades of experience producing the Topan pendant. The pendant has 119" fabric cord.
