PANEL PROGRAMME

One fabric that I have looked for the last 10 years. A real favorite! This fabric print “Panel Programme” is based on the motive from enamel panels with kissing faces that Verner used in their house in Binningen. You can also see this design on the enamel gates outside the same house. The fabric is […]

INDIGO FABRIC

Another prototype fabric from Verner Panton. This was called “Indigo” and as you see in the edge, Verner´s co-worker dated it to the 6:th november 1977. As far as I know, this print never came to serial production.

SMALL WAVE FABRIC

I have never seen the Wave pattern in a small version before. It was one of the few prints I missed in the collection to have all versions of the classical multicolor prints from the 70:ies – in the sizes small, medium and large.

DRAWING BY VERNER

A cool drawing by Verner Panton from the late 70:ies. The notes are instructions to one of his co-worker wich also asks back if they should go for it. I assume this is a first sketch for the Deconova fabric wich was a further development of the Wave fabric from 1973.

PANTON DESIGN FROM 1981

I have many new Verner Panton pieces to show you but let´s start with 16 original drawings for the “Collection Commedia” fabric from 1981. You here also see the prototype testprint in velour for the fabric.

ORIGINAL SHELL CEILING

I was on a little “Pantour” last weekend… This place was one of the things I checked out. The original musselshell ceiling from the Panton famillie´s residence in Binningen is lend out to the Kunsthalle Basel for the coming years. When checking the ceiling closer I also beleive some ceiling panels might be from their […]
