After completing his studies on Odense, Panton moved to Copenhagen in 1947 to enroll as an architecture student. Finally in 1955, Panton started his own design office. Besides being a great designer of carpets, Panton also designs furniture, lamps, fabrics, curtains, room and space designs, watches and accessories. "The main purpose of my work is to provoke the people to use their own imagination" - Verner Panton .
