The spherical globe of the Topan lamp is open at the bottom and consists of polished or lacquered aluminium sheeting. To avoid the risk of the bulb at the centre of the lamp blinding people, Panton hung the lamp as low as possible above the table or floor. The same purpose was served by a specially developed set of deflectors, as used at the Hotel Astoria.
