Verpan is - much like Verner Panton - a product of the Danish design tradition, which have put Denmark on the world map for functional, modern and unique design. In close collaboration with the Panton estate - especially widow Marianne Panton - Verpan has acquired the production and sales rights to a significant part of Verner Panton’s designs. In 2003 the production of lighting was initiated and in 2010 a furniture range was added. A continuous process of picking and choosing products from the vast treasure chest of Pantons work, will bring many more items to life again.
All of the Verpan products stand out as some of the most elegant and memorable of Verner Panton’s designs. Products that create life, sound, movement, colour and light - design that bring value into the visual world around us.
Verner Panton (1926-1998) was an inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colors, shapes, light function and room. Over the course of his career Verner Panton (1926-1998) introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.
With a remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of the form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surrounding.
Verner Panton studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen before going on to work at Arne Jacobsen’s architectural practice. Verner Panton set up his own design studio in 1955.
