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).

smow Blog Design Calendar: October 24th 1969 – Opening Qu'est-ce que le design? @ Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris

...In an attempt to approach one the Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris asked Charles Eames, Verner Panton, Roger Tallon, Joe Colombo and Fritz Eichler, Qu'est-ce que le design?... featured not only five of the leading international designers of the period but five designers who, on paper, represented five very different understandings of design: Charles Eames, one of the leading proponents of that post-War American interpretation of functionalism; the young Italian radical Joe Colombo with his utopian visions of our domestic spaces and understandings of design as much as a branch of linguistics as 3D forming; Roger Tallon, the Grand Doyen of French design, and for all of technical design for industry; Fritz Eichler, the first Design Director at Braun, a man very much associated with technical design for consumers, and the sober reduction of Germanic gute Form; and Verner Panton with his pop tendencies, holistic compositions and understanding of the role, the near primacy, of colour in design...
