    Verner Panton

    Best remembered for his psychedelic colours and designs from the 1960s, Verner Panton (1926-1998) had a design career spanning 50 years. It started with an assistant position for Arne Jacobsen 1950-53 where Panton was responsible for the first colour scheme for the Ant chair. After opening his own design studio in 1955, Panton created everything from early inflatable furniture, carpets and lamps to the radical Cone wire chair. In the early 1960s Panton moved to Basel and when the rest of the world caught up with his vision of vivid colours, new materials and soft wall surfaces he rose to great fame. His most well known chair, simply called The Panton Chair, was designed in 1960 and went into production in 1967. It is now reissued by Vitra in a new, low cost plastic. His Panthella floor and desk lamp is still in production as well as the popular Flowerpot pendant. Panton worked intensely up until his death in 1998.
