I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design


Elizabeth on Jul 09, 2016

Really good quality

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Great support!

Dorothy on May 09, 2016

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Same as original, just cheaper

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Verner Panton's Globe Lamp

Verner Panton's Globe Lamp

There are no products in this collection.

Verner Panton is a world-renowned Danish designer, famous for his innovative approach and the shifting of boundaries of the Danish Modern. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1951. In the first two years of his career, he worked for Arne Jacobsen who got Panton interested in Organic Functionality designer philosophy which he later developed according to his own taste and gave it an artistic touch. Similar to Jacobsen, Panton was inspired by round, organic forms. Designer lamps are an important part of his long and productive career, with the Globe Lamp being one of his best-sold ceiling lamps. Widely considered a masterpiece of Danish designer lamps, the Globe is a big round pendant made of clear acrylic. Inside are five reflectors made of aluminium, lacquered in blue, red and white, reflecting the light in an interesting yet pleasant way. The reflectors are suspended by three steel chains.

Panton designed the Globe lamp in two sizes, with a diameter of 40cm or 50cm, so you can enjoy the diffused light of this designer lamp in both a smaller and a larger room. The 50cm diameter model is also popular in conference rooms, common areas and cafeterias.


Ceiling Lamp with a Unique Light

The VP Globe is a unique and timeless pendant lamp with a striking difference from other pendants. The clear round screen and suspended metal reflectors contribute to the innovative look of this Panton’s design.

The construction gives a fun and exciting lighting which is playfully reflected inside the ball and the well-thought out design ensures that the lamp provides both sufficient amount of light and a pleasant illumination without glare.

The sculptural look of the Globe is very decorative in itself, so even during the day or bright summer evenings, it’s an amazing addition to the décor of the room.

Additional Product Facts

If you want the dry facts, here are the practical information about which bulb to choose for the Globe and further measurements of e.g. the cord:


Material: Transparent Acrylic (Plexiglas)
Socket, small Globe:  E14/E12
Socket, large Globe: E27
Light source: 220V (E14/E27)
Maximum power: 60 watts or 75 watts depending on the size of the Globe
Supplied cable: 400 cm factory cable in black fabric
Ceiling canopy: Chrome



The Globe on Sale

It’s not often that Verner Panton’s lamps, including the Globe, are on sale, but now and then you can get lucky. Because of the popularity and constant demand for the lamp, the retailers have little need to lower the price. So, if you’re looking for this iconic pendant, but don’t have the budget for the costly original, you might try to find a second-hand model or a replica.

Second-Hand Globe

Another way to obtain the Globe lamp at an affordable price is to find a second-hand model. Websites like eBay, Gumtree or Lauritz are a good bet. However, the disadvantage is that you never know which condition the lamp’s in. Be sure to check if the plexiglass shade is intact and without scratches and if all the five reflectors are placed where they should be. Finally, be sure to check the cable, socket and the connections.

Keep in mind that while spare parts for the Globe are available at several retailers, but they can be rather costly and changing the parts isn’t a simple job.
