A remarkable and innovative talent, Verner Panton pioneered many firsts in 20th Century design and architecture. First to create transparent, inflatable furniture, Panton created with an unhindered imaginary vision. Bold, beautiful colors and shapes defined his vision of the future. The creator of many iconic modern designs over the course of his career (1926-1998), including the Cone Chair, C1 Chair and Panton Chair, Panton also successfully created a new set of theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surroundings. By fusing all the elements of a room — floor, walls, ceiling, furnishings, lighting, textiles and wall panels made of enamel or plastic — into a unified whole, Panton's interior installations have attained legendary status.View other products by Verner Panton
