Verner Panton

The Danish architect and designer Verner Panton (1926-1998) is one of the most prominent and innovative designers active in the second half of the 20th century. During his long career he created an extensive and versatile oeuvre that reflected his preference for bold colors and his skillful handling of elementary geometric shapes and figures.

Furniture was central to Verner Panton's creative work, such as the iconic Cone Chair and the Panton Chair, developed in collaboration with Vitra, which is one of his best-known creations. In addition, Verner Panton designed countless lamps and textile products. The interiors he designed, in which he combined elements from all areas of his work into a kind of synthesis of the arts, represent the creative peak of his oeuvre. Examples include the Spiegel Publishing House in Hamburg (1968), the Visiona exhibitions in Cologne (1968 and 1970) produced for the chemical company Bayer, and the Varna restaurant near Aarhus (1971).

Some of Verner Panton's most famous works, such as the Panton Chair and the Panthella Lamp, have been produced continuously for decades or have been put back into production in recent years.
