Verner Panton

Alessandro Mendini, 1999

Verner Panton was a great designer and a sensitive artist. His world, his sculptural and mathematical shapes, his materials and colors are extremely original and capable of transporting us to science fictional landscapes that still have a place in today's world. Panton has always appealed to me, and I have always admired him as a person too, so full of energy, humanity, humor, kindness and friendliness.
