Today some friends from Stockholm came with a lamp I bought for almost no money at all through a local advertisement. It is not an original Panton lamp but a replica. It is the FUN 1 STM lamp (The floor model of a FUN 1), probably a copy from China or so but since it […]
I just found a small sample of wallpaper designed by Verner Panton. I forgot I had it but thought you might wanted to see it.
I will soon take new photos of all the rooms since I have re-arranged a bit.
Some time ago I received one of Verner Pantons very first lamps – 53 years old! This is a prototype of a wall Topan lamp from 1959. The Topan lamp was Verners first lamp that were putted into serial production but the wall model were only made as a prototype – Here it is! This […]
Today I unwrapped the big box that came yesterday and here you can see what it was. A Pantonova Coat Stand made by Lüber in 1971. This is the chromed version and in my eyes the best looking one.
At last! Verner has now got a road of his own. The “Verner Panton-weg” is close to the Vitra designmuseum in Weil Am Rhein, Germany. Marianne Panton was there to open it (see the picture). You can read more about it here: http://www.vitra.com/en-us/collage/architecture/verner-panton-weg/
Geometri 1 fabrics on the walls. Probably a fair in at the company Ahrend in Holland 1962/63. Dutch architects visiting MIRA-X in Hannover. Hannover. My friend with his cool tie! MIRA-X fair in Hannover.
Marianne and Verner Panton at the opening of Varna restaurant 1971. The restaurant. I guess the balls didn´t smell that good after some years of heavy smoking in there… You don´t see these thick velour dresses so often these days…
Velcome to a real MIRA-X party! (MIRA-X is the swiss company that made the biggest part of all Verner Panton fabrics). These pictures comes from a party 1985 in Hamburg. Where is that horse-dress now???
Yesterday, I picked up this super rare set of two chairs made by Storz and Palmer 1962. Very few pieces of these early Verner Panton chairs is known, especially the stool without back rest. According to Marianne Panton, (wich I spoke to about this chair) this is not a chaise longue in two parts […]
Here comes some pictures from a German fellow collector. He collects only furnitures. He just recently bought this purple armchair from the SOFT LINE SERIES made for the VISIONA 2 exhibition in Cologne. A really cool piece! (There is a SITTING WHEEL in the foreground).
