verner panton

The Danish designer Verner PANTON was born in Copenhagen in 1926.
After training as an architectural engineer in Odense, he studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
From 1950 to 1952, he collaborated with Arne Jacobsen, another famous Danish architect and designer, notably on the famous Ant. Panton chair.
In 1955, Verner PANTON ended his collaboration with Arne Jacobsen and founded his own design studio.
At the end of the 1950s, his chairs became less and less conventional, the legs disappeared and the backs became blurred. For example, one of his first K1 chairs was a cone; he would use this idea many times.
In 1960, PANTON designed the first injection-moulded plastic chair, the Panton 2.
This S-shaped chair, which can be easily fitted together, is still produced in series by Vitra.
In the late 1960s, Verner PANTON turned his attention from designing objects to designing ‘psychedelic’ domestic environments, forming colourful ensembles of curved shapes, upholstered walls and light, all of which occupy the entire available space, from floor to ceiling.
Today, his most famous creations are still in production and on display at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein in southern Germany.
