Verner Panton and Poulsen's LamPetit

Did Verner Panton design Louis Poulsen's versatile LamPetit? Certainly the compact little lamp is unexpected for its 1966 date, looking more like something from the 1980s with its blocky minimalist lines and orange-black-grey colour range, so it was clearly designed by someone with an original approach.

But the 1960s Poulsen adverts for the lamp did not specify a designer, so the LamPetit is often credited to the Louis Poulsen in-house design team.

However, a Poulsen booklet published after Panton's death reveals that it was in fact the work of the great man himself, listing the LamPetit together with other lights he designed for the company – the Flowerpot, the VP Kugle (VP Globe), the Europa and the Panthella.
