These beautiful chandeliers are available through Stardust Modern Design in the US.

Considered as one of Denmark’s most influential 20th Century furniture and interior designers, Verner Panton pushed all creative barriers with innovative and futuristic design, exhilarated by the use of explosive bold colouring. Born in 1926, Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen, graduating in 1951. Experimenting design with a wide array of psychedelic composition, the revered designer was engaged by the Op Art movement, a distinguished belief and style within visual arts focused explicitly upon the relationship between striking bold colours and forms, rousing an intense visual effect. Panton’s style was very fundamental to the decade of his greatest work, the 1960s, but an emergence of regained popularity with his design is very evident today. Verner Panton's unique lighting designs display astounding qualities that attract attention everywhere. View the entire product range, browse the gallery and buy from Stardust; the US distributor. Comfortable in designing with a variety of materials, from fabric to plastics, Verner Panton is celebrated for his innovative project work for Der Spiegel, a well-known German publication in Hamburg. The Dane also received endearing recognition in the form of numerous awards, including the prestigious Deutsche Auswahl prize 5 years in a row between 1981 and 1986.
