Verner Panton is considered one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers, not to mention one of the most avant-gardes. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials and in vibrant, exotic colours.
Panton Wire System
The Panton Wire system was originally designed by Verner Panton in 1971. Montana Furniture is now adding three new elements to this versatile shelving system – the rectangular module, the suspended wire shelf and the inlay shelf.
Designer: Verner Panton
More versatile than ever before
Panton Wire is raw, yet elegant and light, yet industrial. The Panton Wire is not only beautiful as a stand-alone but also in combination, standing on a floor, mounted on a wall or used as a room divider. The new rectangular modules and suspended shelf are perfect when it comes to creating an asymmetrical look. Add a top panel or inlay shelf to add more personality to your Panton Wire shelving system. The system is available at your nearest Montana retailer.
The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting.
With simple shape and light construction, this is a typical example of Verner Panton’s working method, where design and logic go hand in hand. In 1971, when Verner Panton designed the Pan-ton Wire the idea with the chromed wire furniture was that the wire would catch the surrounding colour.
Today the Panton Wire is still available in Chrome, but also lacquered in Black, Snow and the bold blue colour, Monarch. The modules are available in four sizes. Through time more accesso-ries have been added including shelves and top panels in both MDF, smoked glass and marble. The newest addition to the classic wire shelving unit is the special edition - the Panton Wire Limited Edition Matt Gold. Get it at your nearest Montana retailer from 1 November 2019 and as long as stock is available.
A shared world of ideas and colours
When Peter J. Lassen, the founder of Montana, first met the young Danish architect Verner Panton in 1956, neither of them was aware that this would be the beginning of a close friendship and life-long collaboration.
Between them arose a constant dialogue about design in which their shared world of ideas was surrounded by great mutual respect. The result was a large number of interesting and innovative pieces of furniture designed by Verner Panton. Some of these are manufactured by Montana today and can be found below.
