The Phantasy Landscapes of Verner Panton

Verner Panton, a fantastic Danish architect and designer known for his wild interiors and furniture. “Most people spend their lives housing in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colours.” He definitely was not afraid. Tak skal du have, Verner!

There’s a magnificent promotional video of his work on this flash based fan site (still under development) that I don’t know how to link directly to. Click on his name, then click on enter, then environment, then Visiona 2, and finally the video tab is to the right. Wow. For other great interiors, check here. If only Trading Spaces had designers like these.

Is "skal" danish for colorblindness?

I'm fairly sure it's Danish for "stoned out of his gourd."

I was looking in some my-first-design-book yesterday and I saw some of this guy's work. Looks like great nightclub fare. Anyway, cool links.

...and for those lovely rooms how about some furniture? Pour me a metropolitan baby, I'll be in the Bubble Chair.

Just looking at the pictures gave me a headache. I guess I'll stick to rectilinear beige living spaces.

Admittedly, its very cool looking and I would love to end up in that 'cave' room one saturday night, but its impractical. Can you imagine trying to vacuum/dust that room?
