In the digital age, we at Design Network have remained a shrewd travelling salesman: We bring the names and products of our partners to the fore- front, inspiring the furniture industry with fresh breezes and new stories. As an intermediary between brands and dealers, we position international furniture manufacturers on the excl- usive Austrian and Eastern European market. Working with Design Network is collaborative, proactive and honest. Our customers include the exclusive Austrian and Eastern European retail furniture market, design studios, architects, and decision makers. Together with our clients, we focus on sales support, employee trainings, order processing and much more. But that’s not where we stop; we also see our responsibility in: floor and show- room planning, showroom decoration, and maintaining enduring relationships with advertising partners. Only by doing all of that can we guarantee a brand-appropriate presentation for our collaborators. That of course also includes a sufficient presence of the latest product portfolio with retail and media partners.
Verpan is a Danish furniture and lighting manufacturer dedicated to the works of Danish design icon, Verner Panton. In close collaboration with the Panton estate, Verpan has acquired the exclusive rights to a significant part of Verner Panton’s iconic furniture, lighting and accessories – designs that bring life, movement, colour and light into homes, offices and public spaces.
Verner Panton (1926-1998) was an inspirational and colourful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colours, shapes, light function and room. Panton is known for his chairs, but we at Design Network found his unconventional psychedelic fixtures and fittings for restaurants and offices much more memorable. The main purpose of his work was and still is to provoke people to use 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 utilising the latest technologies, he tries to show new ways to encourage people to use their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting.
We have been in the furniture industry for quite a while now. Despite our experience, we are always keen and curious about products that tell a story. That’s why we love searching out furniture brands that have a history to share. Finding the balance between the past, the present and quality, we let the product design tell its very own story. Inspiring and transforming the Austrian and Eastern European furniture market with our representative tasks.
