Verner Panton  is considered one of Denmark’s most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colors. His style was very ”1960s” but regained popularity at the end of the 20th century; as of 2004, Panton’s most well-known furniture models are still in production (at Vitra, among others).

Panton was often radical and far ahead of time in the way het worked – it was about trying new. Both materials and production techniques. Everything according to the motto: ”A less successful experiment is preferable to a beautiful flatness.”
