Verner Panton


Verner Panton (*1926 in Gamtofte, Denmark; † 1998 Copenhagen, Denmark) studied at Odense Technical College before enrolling at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen as an architecture student. He worked from 1950-52 in the architectural firm of Arne Jacobsen, and in 1955 founded an independent studio for architecture and design. In the following years Panton created numerous designs for seating furniture and lighting which he often attempted to sell on Europe-wide tours in his old VW camper van. In many respects Pantons passion for bright colours and geometric patterns can be considered prototypes of 1970s design culture. Among his most important designs are Moon Lamp and for all Panton Chair, perhaps the most iconic chair design of all times. Verner Panton's passion for bright colours and geometric patterns also manifested itself in an extensive range of textile designs, such as Geometri. In addition to designing furniture and textiles, Verner Panton was also responsible for numerous imaginative interior design projects. The most famous examples are the "Visiona" ship installations for the Cologne Furniture Fair (1968 and 1970), the Spiegel publishing headquarters in Hamburg (1969) and the Varna restaurant in Aarhus (1970).
