His spectacular use of colors and materials defied established norms and traditions and made the Danish architect world-famous. He became one of the most influential designers of his time.
From 1986 to 1998, Innovation Living had the great pleasure of working with the Danish design icon Verner Panton. The relationship started when Innovation Living applied for a license to relaunch the fine Geometry textile.
A very close and warm relationship developed quickly between Verner Panton and Innovation Living chief designer Per Weiss, which led to an agreement on the development of a project that spawned the iconic Phantom chair.
The close collaboration subsequently led to the relaunch of Illumesa, the launch of Panto pop and the development of Panto Beam. Unfortunately, the collaboration ended with Verner Panton's sudden death shortly after.
A tribute to the era of bold graphic fabrics and interior design from the early Sixties. Unfurl is based on a strong steel construction and is equipped with Pocket Spring comfort.

For a hole year there was a fantastic opportunity to re-experience Verner Panton's unique universe at Trapholt museum in Kolding, Denmark – as the exhibition VERNER PANTON – COLOURING A NEW WORLD has been created for everyone to enjoy.
The installation Light and Colour, which Panton originally created for an exhibition at Trapholt in 1998, took visitors through eight rooms, each with their own colour scheme. The result was a magnificent, sensual experience that drew your attention to the physical effect each colour has on your mood and well-being.
