Experimental Danish designer Verner Panton had originally wanted to be an artist but his father’s objection to this led him to pursue architecture instead. Before enrolling in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, he worked as a bricklayer. After, he became an apprentice to architect-designer Arne Jacobsen of whom he said “I have never learned as much from anyone as I did from Arne Jacobsen.” Panton travelled Europe with architect Hans Ove Barfod in a VW camper van that was outfitted with a drawing office to look for commissions.  Know More about Verner Panton  |  Know More about Modern Classics
