Verner Panton Visiona

June 12th, 2011




Experiencing the Sixties to mid-Seventies learning under Verner Panton would have been amazing. He was commissioned multiple times to design an exhibition for the chemical company Bayer. Each year the company rented a boat during the Cologne furniture fair and turned it into a temporary showroom. The designed by Panton were titled ‘Visiona’ and ‘Visiona 2′. Both showcased surreal organic interior home furnishings that consisted of vibrant colors. The word psychedelic is continually lingering in my mind and I do wonder his process of coming up with these color and shape choices.

As you can imagine the day I begin designing my own home, reflections of this intriguing style will be present somewhere inside. It’s places like these that are unnatural that seem to be the best fitting for my ability to create things. Make sure to check out the videos after the jump to see a quick walk through.

    Wow, what was Verner on? Probably not this planet :) These sets are… hang on, looking for the right word… GROOVEY. If only my place was like this.

  3. Shelby White says:

    Ha! Mick, that was the word I should have used… Grooovy.

    @Adam, I’d love to see more compiled shots like you’ve done in the beginning of your showreel.

    if this was a drinking establishment, my wallet would be even emptier than it is now.

    fantastic.

  6. Love the quirky designs, and totally out there colour, really intriguing…what was he on? Great Imagination, love the fact nothing is square and box shaped.

    I have always been intrigued about why Verner Panton did not make any decor or scenery for movies, especially for sci-fi ones. I searched a lot the Internet for any Panton collaboration with the seventh art but I could not find anything. A Visiona-like installation would have been so amazing for any dystopian film. On the other hand, it’s obvious that Panton has been a great inspiration for many film decors such as the time travel machine in Alain Resnais “Je t’aime je t’aime”.

    Thanks for the great post.
