Panton Color Wheel, 2015

This is a Panton color wheel. It was designed by Hella Jongerius and made for Vitra AG. It is dated 2015. Its medium is mixed media.

As Art Director for Colors and Materials, Dutch designer Hella Jongerius created a specific color wheel for each of Vitra’s designers. “All the designers come to us having made their own color choices,” she said. “It’s very important that each one has signature colors that no one else can use. . .” Panton’s wheel illustrates his commitment to pure, saturated color as a fundamental component of design.
