His design is searched for by collectors all over the world and fetch high prices at major auction houses. Verner Panton was an artist in the true sense of the word.

His design was consistently brilliant, he created sensual shaped furniture in vibrant colors and even added sound and smell to his interior projects so one could become completely one with his surroundings. He was first to create inflatable furniture, pioneered with the much acclaimed single molded plastic chair and refused to accept gravity by creating the Flying Chair. Panton envisioned a colorful future. His career was highlighted by the Visiona Landscapes he created for Bayer AG in 1968 and 1970 that have now achieved cult status.
