Above all else, for famed Danish designer Verner Panton, color was always the most important thing. All of his furniture and lighting designs were created in celebration of color, using unique forms and materials to shake up the status quo and evoke strong feelings.
"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination," Panton once said. "Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colors.
By experimenting with lighting, colors, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways to encourage people to use their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting."
Panton's desire to provoke and innovate was cultivated by working alongside another iconic Danish designer, Arne Jacobsen in the 1950s. However, Panton proved to be an "enfant terrible" and ventured out on his own to develop and polish his fluid, futuristic style. From the '50s through the '90s, Panton remained on the cutting edge of design. He developed the first inflatable furniture, designed the first chair cast in one piece (the S chair) and was forever experimenting with light and color. Some of his most successful lighting efforts included the design of the Topan Pendant
(1959), the Wire Lamp (1972), the UFO Pendant (1975), and the Pan-top Collection (1980).
As reproductions of such classic Panton designs-as well as new designs inspired by the Panton legacy-Vernor Panton furniture and Vernor Panton lighting continue to this day to delight and inspire all who see it.
