Verner Panton: The Collected Works
A Danish designer who lived in Switzerland, Verner Panton (1926-1998) was a great master of postwar design. While extravagant forms and the use of strong, bright color are hallmarks of his work, it is clearly grounded in the elegant Functionalism of the 1950s. Panton retained a systematic approach to design throughout his life, and his practice extended to the design and development of groups of works and entire spaces. This volume celebrates Paint’s diverse oeuvre, and constitutes a significant contribution to the history of postwar design.
