The organically shaped Living Tower furniture sculpture by Verner Panton can be used on four different levels. Over two metres high, the appealingly upholstered seating tower has a stable frame made of birch plywood. The cleverly arranged interior niches can be used in sitting and reclined positions, encouraging communication and relaxation.
Verner Panton, born in Gamtofte, Denmark, studied at Odense Technical College before enrolling at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen as an architecture student. He worked from 1950-1952 in the architectural firm of Arne Jacobsen and founded an independent studio for architecture and design in 1955. He first attracted wider attention with the geometric forms of his furniture designs for the firm Plus-linje. In the following years Panton created numerous designs for seating furniture and lighting.
