Dive into the colourful, fun, and futuristic universe of Verner Panton

Verner Panton is the enfant terrible of Danish design. While his Danish colleagues during the 1950s and 60s prioritised natural materials and manual craftsmanship, Panton went abroad and experimented with coloured plastic, fibre glass, steel and synthetic fabrics and tried out new industrial mass-production methods.

This book examines Panton’s almost scientific approach to environments, colours, systems and patterns unfolded in colourful total interiors and imaginative product designs. Panton’s oeuvre is presented as a truly pioneering effort that points towards modern design and the role of the visual experience in a globalised society.
