“The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives housing in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colours. By experimenting with colours, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to new ways, to try to encourage people to use their fantasy and make their surroundings more exciting.” – Verner Panton 1926-1998

The first four images are archival photos of Panton interiors. The last four are some of his design classics. For more amazing images check out Verner Panton Design.

LOVE THIS POST – although it just reminds me how badly I want his S chair. And that pendant in the second last photo is so incredible. He is on the top of my genius list.
