Verner Panton FlowerPot light fitting
When you have a light fitting that looks as cutting edge today as it did over 35 years ago, you know it's a safe bet to stay in style for many more years. And that certainly applies to the Verner Panton FlowerPot light fitting.
It first hit the market in 1969, with a name allegedly derived from the hippy flower power movement. But there's no flowers here - just a simple overlapping shade in coloured aluminium or plain polished metal.
And if you go for the colour, the orange is surely most representative of the period. You can pick it up for £110.
