The Verner Panton Story
Verner Panton had a strong desire to provoke and innovate from an early age. The desire 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.
