Design Verner Panton, 1968
Birch plywood frame, polyurethane foam, upholstery
Made in Germany by Vitra

"Most people spend their lives living in dreary, beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colors. The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting." -Verner Panton

"Living landscapes" was a major theme in 1960's design. Verner Panton, who was constantly searching for new ideas for the home, made a variety of especially interesting and original contributions to this theme, championing "more comfort, more of an experience, and more color". His Living Tower uses all three dimensions of a room. The organically shaped sculptural piece can be used at four different levels. Panton believed that it is important to seek harmony between people and their surroundings... the living tower fosters communication and interaction. Vitra originally produced this piece in very limited numbers in 1969, and in an amazing display of inspiration, does so once again.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926 – 1998) created innovative, futuristic designs in vibrant colors with a variety of materials. Many of his well-known furniture designs have remained in continuous production and others have been reintroduced. Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art graduating in 1951. He subsequently worked in the architecture office of Arne Jacobsen. Panton started his own design and architectural practice and was well known for his innovative architectural proposals including a collapsible house, the Cardboard House and the Plastic House. In 1953 Panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. He returned to Denmark full of ideas, one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. Based on his vision of a one-piece one material cantilever chair, Panton in collaboration with Vitra developed the first cantilever plastic chair. The Panton chair became his most famous design and has been in production since 1967.
