Description
A comprehensive monograph on one of the world's most influential and recognizable postwar designers.

The uncompromising bad boy of postwar Danish design, Verner Panton created enduring icons of pop culture, beloved the world over. He broke with the Scandinavian tradition of handcrafted teak-wood furniture to pioneer the use of plastic, fibreglass, synthetic fabrics, and industrial mass production, and this thoroughly researched and exhaustively illustrated book examines Panton's ground-breaking approach to environments, systems, patterns and color. Panton's oeuvre is a truly pioneering achievement, the wide-ranging influence of which is still felt today.

Containing a wealth of images, including hand-drawn sketches by Panton, personal photographs, and advertisements from the official Panton archive, this monograph documents the astonishing breadth of Panton's work, from candlesticks and clocks to the seminal S Chair and Living Tower, to total floor-to-ceiling interiors, encompassing textiles, lighting, and furniture.

This book is organized thematically with Panton's unique approach to environments, systems, and vividly illustrated patterns, and features a comprehensive, illustrated chronology of Panton's works, including many unrealized projects.
