Best Quotes by Verner Panton

“A failed experiment can be more important than a trivial design.”

“Choosing colours should not be a gamble. It should be a conscious decision. Colours have a meaning and a function.”

“Light and color are closely linked. The colors can make a crucial change in nature, if you switch from daylight to artificial light or just from strong to weak illumination. In addition, color perception is affected by the material structure. Even if a piece of textile can have the same color as a shiny enamel plate, then they will act completely different.”

“One sits more comfortably on a colour that one likes.”

“The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives 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.”
