...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...

68. Pop und Protest @ the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg

...In which context, Pop und Protest also encompass one of the most audacious interpretations of the late 1960s Pop inspired design: Verner Panton's canteen and bar for the Spiegel office building in Hamburg, part of a larger commission Panton realised in 68/69, and which included monochrome editorial floors with each colour selected to support and encourage work/workers, a swimming pool, reception area, and the canteen and bar... Over the years Panton's work was slowly painted over or refurnished away, and when Der Spiegel moved to a new building in 2012 the last remnants of canteen and bar were acquired by the MKG, where they stand today in their (largely) orangey glory as a potent reminder of both the spirit of the times and also the importance of Verner Panton...
