Designtel - Modular Furniture System, Verner Panton

Modular Furniture System [1965]

Verner Panton

A line devised for an experimental interiors exhibition that heralded new-age, optimistic design, Verner Panton’s Modular Furniture extruded his iconically stark, tessellated geometries into an overtly polygonal seating system. Initially showcased at the 1968 Cologne Furniture Fair for Visiona 0, Panton’s work served to highlight the abilities of synthetics in home furnishings (as was the brief), but went further to demonstrate the power of reduced, blocky hues and forms and their impact on space.
