Forms in Colour

“One sits more comfortably on a colour that one likes”
Verner Panton

Just went to see the Verner Panton Exhibition at Toyko Opera City Art Gallery. Not only it was great to see all of his chairs, lighting design and original sketches but also it was amazing to be in the space that they build – the Phantasy Landscape, Visiona 2. It was originally designed for Cologne Furniture Fair, 1970. After you take off your shoes and lie on the curved space, suddenly I was completely in his fantasy land. This exhibition will be open until 27th December. If you happen to be in Tokyo, don’t miss it.
