Some design classics seem to resurface and become larger than they have ever been before; such is the rebirth of the Verner Panton Globe. Most reputable Scandinavian furniture stores stock these wonderful acrylic ceiling lamps these days, and secondhand prices are soaring. Its see-through bubble fits neatly into minimalistic modern raw apartments or houses.  ´

Designed back in 1969 by Verner Panton, the Globe is timeless, especially compared to much of the other furniture around these use-and-throw-out IKEA days. (No offense, Ingvard Kamprad.)
