verner panton

I could not help to find out more about verner panton after seeing the below image.  It turns out he is a great color theorist of the 20th century. He created innovative and futuristic furniture designs in a variety of materials and in vibrant colors. Panton was also the designer of the very first single-form injection-moulded plastic chair – the Stacking chair or S chair, which would become his most famous and mass-produced design. He designed seating, lighting, wall elements, environment and fabrics. His psychedelic colors shocked the world of products.

On the first page of his website there is a quote from Kandinsky : ” Color is the keyboard, eyes are the harmonies and the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration in the soul ”
