Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926-1998) is famous for his inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense for color, shape, light function and space.

Over the course of his career, Panton introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.

With remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about light function and influence.

'The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. 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'. - Verner Panton

Verner had a very clear attitude regarding his work and regarding shape, color and function. At the same time, he made conscious and brave use of different materials. His use of different materials often led to his contemporaries disparaging the 'timelessness' of his design. The great interest in his design today proves the opposite.
