Earning a reputation as an ‘enfant terrible’ in his early career, this boundary-pushing attitude would see Verner Panton go onto become one of the most influential furniture and interior designers of the twentieth-century.
Today, his works are considered archetypal examples of 1960s furniture, yet when he was at his most prolific his designs were truly ground-breaking, both for their use of materials and their organic shapes, inspired by the human body.
The fact that Panton’s most well known furniture models are still in production today, 60 years after they first turned heads, is testament to their beauty and functionality.
Vitra is responsible for the production of some of the most recognisable and important pieces of furniture in the world, designed by icons such as Charles and Ray Eames, Verner Panton and George Nelson. Indeed the Vitra catalogue reads like a Who’s Who of the design greats of the twentieth-century.
So important is the Vitra furniture collection, a museum designed by Frank Gehry, was established on the Vitra campus in 1989. Synonymous with both furniture and architecture, Vitra continues to produce both classic and modern furniture for new generations of admirers.
