VERNER PANTON DESIGN & DANGER DIABOLIK

Our friends at Design Within Reach offer an exclusive catalog of Verner Panton creations. Adding to their current line of lights and a Panton chair, pre-sale of Panton furniture and rugs will begin in May. DWR recently spent time with Verner Panton's wife, Marianne, to discuss the designer's work and artistic process. Full interview here. Panton's designs have appeared on Spy Vibe's radar in the past, including our Top-ten Set Countdown #1 (Danger Diabolik). Designer Verner Panton's "total environment" installation exhibits, such as Visiona (1968) and Visiona II (1970), were room constructions of fluid, organic forms. Here is Panton's design followed by Diabolik's vault room. See how Panton-style furniture also appeared in our Top-Ten #5 film, The 10th Victim. For more information about Panton, check out the very cool Verner Panton Museum page here.
