Revisiting the Future

Vitra Design Museum Gallery

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 in 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.
