Verner Panton in his own words

"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination.

Most people spend their lives housing in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colours.

By experimenting with lighting, colours, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies,I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their phantasy and make their surroundings more exciting."
