Verner Pantan

Verner Panton (1926-1998) is among Denmark’s most distinguished and influential designers of modern furniture, lighting and textiles. Known for his explicit use of vibrant colors, mechanical patterns, and organic geometry, Panton created innovative and futuristic designs that truly invoke the imagination. His style is definitive of the 1960’s but his timeless works are as relevant in contemporary design as they were a half-century ago.

After viewing Verner Panton's designs I liked his eccentric and futuristic style he created by theorizing color is more important than form and a good combination of colors can add depth and three dimensionality to space. I really enjoy to look at his furniture and especially textile designs. His pieces are both simple and complex and are meant to be the main focus or ensemble to create an environmental theme.
