One of the giants of Danish design, Verner Panton (1926-1998) earned a reputation as a visionary due to its pioneering use of materials, colours, shapes. Panton created lamps, furniture and textiles becoming famous for his innovative, avant-gard designs such as chairs with no legs or discernible back or a sofa placed vertically against the wall. He was already an experienced painter when he starded his studies at Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. In the first two years of his career Verner worked in the architectural firm of the well-known Arne Jacobsen, but in 1955 he pursued his own path in furniture and interior design, founding his own design and architectural studio.
In 1960 Panton created the first single-form injection-moulded plastic chair – The S chair that became the most famous of his designs.
