About Verner Panton

Verner Panton was a Danish furniture designer and interior designer. He is considered to be one of the most important Danish designers to have emerged during the 20th century and many of his designs are still in production following his death in 1998. He was renowned for his futuristic designs, many of which were fabricated in plastic. He was born on 14 February 1926 and died on 5 September 1998.

Verner Panton was known, initially trained as an artist, living and working in Odense. He then went on to study architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art and graduated in 1951. After a brief stint working for the design and architectural practice of Arne Jacobsen, he set up his own design house. He was soon in the press and recognised by designs for a collapsible house, a cardboard house and his Plastic House which were created from the mid 50s to 1960.

In 1960 he began experimenting more with chair designs and is recognised as the first person to create a one piece, injection moulded plastic chair. These stacking chairs were mass produced to become his most famous creation. At the time he was also experimenting with chair designs featuring no legs or no recognisable back. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s Panton was experimenting with creating entire interiors, using psychedelic visuals, consisting of curved furnishings, wall upholstering, and unusual textiles and lighting techniques. He is known for designing a number of interiors including a hotel in France, which featured circular patterns and cylindrical shaped furniture. 

Some of his most important works were the Peacock Chair, the Cone Chair, the Panton Chair, the S-chair (stacking plastic chairs), the Spiegel canteen in Hamburg. Additionally He also worked as a designer for Der Spiegel in Germany which is a well-known Hamburg publication. He had an inspirational personality and impacted upon everyone he met. All his designs featured a lot of experimentation with shape and light and the space in which he was creating his works. His lighting theories influenced a whole host of young Danish designers and so his name goes on.

Today many design pieces from Verner Panton have been put back into production under the brand Verpan.  They work exclusively to produce his lighting and furniture in close consultation with his estate and especially his widow Marianne Panton.  You view and purchase many of Verpans products below.
