VerPan is a Danish furniture and lighting company founded in 2003, which reissues many models designed by Verner Panton in strict compliance with the original models and in close collaboration with Marianne Panton and her family, exclusive custodians of the memory and designer rights.
VerPan began with the re-release of some of Verner Panton's most iconic lamps, like the VP Globe and the Mother of Pearl collection. Since 2010, a collection of furniture has been added, with iconic pieces like the very versatile 430 Series or the eye’s catching 123 Systems.
2020 marks an important milestone, as VerPan has joined the &Tradition brand in a then powerful group, which will allow it to continue its reissue Verner Panton designs in an even more ambitious way.
Among the giants of Danish design, Verner Panton established a unique reputation for his exuberant originality and tireless experimentation. Panton created lamps, furniture and textiles – and was also a sought-after interior designer.
Although he was at the forefront of mid-century Danish Modern, Panton’s contribution was anything but mainstream. He enthusiastically embraced new materials, he splashed with a bold colour palette, and he playfully imbued many of his sculptural creations with a strong graphical expression – without ever compromising on quality or workmanship.
Panton’s iconic designs have emerged as contemporary design classics – as strikingly inventive now as they were 50 years ago.
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 living 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 imagination and make their surroundings more exciting”.
