Verner Panton’s Pantop Lamp—a 1980 design characterized by its bell-like, widely flaring shade—is now available in a rechargeable portable version. Produced in a more contemporary material, painted polycarbonate, the Pantop casts its light downward, making it a great bedside reading or desk lamp, or for bringing some mood light to your outdoor gatherings. It turns on with a brushed metal bolt on top of the shade, which also dims the light in three stages. The Pantop Portable Lamp measures 12h x 7"diam., weighs 3 lbs and has an integrated 1.5W LED board. It charges via a micro USB cable (included), providing up to eight hours of light per seven-hour charge. Verner Panton’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.

Known for his futuristic designs in a variety of materials, particularly plastic, Verner Panton (1926–1998) is considered one of Denmark's most influential designers of the last century. Although his designs for the home and office have a distinct 1960s style, they have attained a timeless appeal. His work in MoMA's collection includes the Stacking Side Chair (1959–1960), a gravity-defying design made from fiber-reinforced plastic. His furniture and lighting designs have appeared in exhibitions at the Museum, including Architecture and Design: Inaugural Installation (2004–2005).
