The largest exhibition of its kind presenting works by a single designer, the Verner Panton Exhibition presents a comprehensive range of assorted masterpieces from the initial works to the experimental designs. In addition, the retrospective focuses primarily on works created between the mid-Fifties and mid-Seventies, during which time he had a substantial influence upon the direction and development of international design.

The exhibition is organized according to chronological and thematic considerations, but does not regard the communication of knowledge and the presentation of background information as its only task. Its other goal – very much in the spirit of Panton – is to offer the visitor an intense sensorial experience. Accordingly, great attention will be given to the physical design of the exhibition.
