1950-Verner Panton, Tove Kemp und Poul Henningsen

Marriage to Tove Kemp, step-daughter of the designer Poul Henningsen

During his architectural studies Panton met Tove Kemp, the step-daughter of the architect and designer Poul Henningsen. They married in 1950 and had a son who died early, but the marriage was short-lived. On the other hand the close friendship between Verner Panton and Poul Henningsen, who soon became Panton’s most significant mentor, lasted until the death of Poul Henningsen in 1967.
