More than 50 years have passed since design renaissance man, Verner Panton, began crafting his completely unique and sometimes wacky creations. As one of the true rebels and pioneers in the world of lighting and furniture design, Panton has become an icon. Devoted and so true to his visions and ideas that his creative language shocked his surroundings when he started designing and continues to leave people amazed today.

The round Panton table was designed in 1970 and was originally planned as a dinning room table to match the Panton Chair. The table remained a prototype, but now, after more than 40 years, it has finally been put into production by Verpan, which is pleased to present a ‘genuine’ Panton table. The round tabletop is elegantly mounted on a cone (in steel) and has a round, flat steel foot, making the table a perfect match for the System 1-2-3 dining room chairs.
Table lamp made of a cylindrical wire frame ending with a hemisphere. The upper part of the lamp is equipped with a hemispherical plastic screens.
The lamp consists of a large numbers of ring-shaped, discs which are suspended around the centrally located bulb. The fan-shaped discs hide the bulb and at the same time serve as reflectors, through which a soft light is spread throughout the room. The Moon pendant is one of Verner Panton's earliest lamps. It consists of ten ring-shaped blades positioned in such a way that they can move.
The Spion (spy) features a hemispherical, metallised shade which fixes directly to the wall or ceiling; when illuminated, the interior (red) is visible. The lamp consists of a circular base plate of aluminium sheeting which is partly polished, partly lacquered red and is mounted on the wall or ceiling. At the centre of the plate there is a fitting for the bulb and a hemispherical reflector which hides it. A hemispherical, reflecting plastic dome which is the same size as the base plate completes the design.
Verpan introduces two chairs from the original 1-2-3 series designed by Verner Panton in 1973. The series originally comprised 20 different models with variations in seat height, arm rests and feet. The new series includes a dining room chair and a lounge chair – both models are available in a standard version made from moulded foam rubber upholstered with fabric and a deluxe version in leather.

This wood frame sofa - made from plywood and pine wood - was originally designed in 1969. Now available again, the sofa design consists of a build-up system - a right, left and middle unit, which can be connected.
"Light and color are closely linked. The colors can make a crucial change in nature, if you switch from daylight to artificial light or just from strong to weak illumination. In addition, color perception is affected by the material structure. Even if a piece of textile can have the same color as a shiny enamel plate, then they will act completely different. "
A new series of carpets with Verner Panton motifs in brown/sand and dark grey/light grey. The motif for the new Panton carpets comes from the ‘Grande’ textile from 1975, which consists of geometric circle patterns.
Verner Panton’s Partyset was designed in 1965 and produced in moulded wood. The set comprises five stools, four with black leather cushions in various sizes and one that can be used as a table. The five cylindrical elements can be stacked inside each so they only occupy the space of one stool.
