Description

Montana Furniture’s Panton Wire inlay shelf is part of a modular shelving system created by the legendary Danish designer Verner Panton in 1971. The shelving system is characterized by simple, flowing forms and versatile adaptability. The inlay shelf makes the shelving system even more versatile: it gives a beautiful finish to the steel wire module and allows you to display even the smallest items on the shelf. 

The Panton Wire system allows you to create a customizable storage solution to any room of the house. You can arrange the modules, shelves and panels into a free-standing bookshelf, mount them on the wall as a nightstand or kitchen shelf, or compose them into a room divider. The outcome is – typically for Verner Panton’s designs – industrial, elegant and airy at the same time. The Montana products have been manufactured in Denmark at the company’s own factory.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926-1998) is considered one of Denmark’s most influential furniture and interior designers in the 20th century. Panton’s works are represented in numerous museums worldwide, and he was awarded several prestigious design awards. He was a unique designer with a special sense of colour, shape, light function and space.

Panton was trained as an architectural engineer in Odense and after that he studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen, graduating in 1951. During his career, he created innovative and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, often using very vibrant colours. Panton also introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries. The Panthella lamp, created in 1971, is one of the most famous luminaires by Panton.

Panton was also famous for his inspirational and colourful personality. “The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colours. By experimenting with lighting, colours, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting,” Panton commented on his designs.
