Verner Panton studied at the renowned Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Upon finishing his schooling, he apprenticed at Arne Jacobsen’s architectural practice before establishing his own design studio in 1955. Although Panton was influenced by Jacobsen’s organic modern approach, he first established himself at the forefront of the avant-garde with furniture based on geometric forms and use of strong colors. Panton is regarded today as a major contributor to the development of modern design in the second half of the 20th century. The Mirror Throw (1973) is one of his most iconic graphic designs, originally conceived for the famous Visiona II fantasy environment that he created for the Cologne Furniture Fair in 1970. This plush merino wool throw features Verpan’s trademark geometric shapes in two hues that play off each other. Made in Lithuania.
