Verner Panton was an inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colours, shapes, light
function and room.
Over the course of his career, Verner Panton (1926-1998) introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of
his Scandinavian contemporaries.
With a remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of the form, Verner Panton worked successfully to create a new set of
theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surroundings.
Verner Panton in his own words:
"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in
dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of usning colors. By experimenting with lighting, colors, textiles and furniture
and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their fantasy imagination and make
their surroundings more exciting".
