For the next few weeks we are going to take a retrospective journey through some of our favourite designers. We will begin by discussing extraordinary Danish designer Verner Panton (13 February 1926 – 5 September 1998). Perhaps best known for his single formed plastic cantilever chair, the “S- chair”. Verner Panton also contributed significantly to spatial design with his experiments with colour and psychedelic interiors.  Panton’s  experimented with new concepts of communal living with such designs as “the living wall”, “living room honeycomb” “Living Tower” and the “seating cave” .  These works capture an enormous sense of movement,  and exploration that is characterised by the late sixties with the undulating curves and bold use of colour.  Panton’s work is synonymous with the exotic colour palette and fluid futuristic geometric forms of the Pop Art movement.  New interest and vitality is being breathed into Panton’s work with the current interior trends of mid-century and psychedelic design revival.
