Visiona 1970

Vitra Design Museum hosts “Visiona 1970: Revisiting the Future”, an exhibition dedicated to Verner Panton’s interior lansdcape Visiona 2 with the reconstruction of the installation.

Visiona 1970
In 1970, the Danish designer Verner Panton was commissioned by Bayer AG to create the interior landscape Visiona 2, one of the most radical visions of the future in twentieth-century design.
Instead of separate rooms with classical furnishings, Panton developed a domestic environment composed of colourful, modular upholstery elements, reflecting the informal, relaxed attitudes
 and lifestyles of the time.

The centrepiece of Visiona 2 was a spectacular, cave-like interior landscape marked by vibrant colours and organic forms. The exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum Gallery presents a faithfully reproduced, walk-in reconstruction of the installation, complemented by a behind-the-scenes look at Panton’s Visiona 2 project.
