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 […]
The latest piece in Pantonworlds collection of different Verner Panton literature is this large poster/catalogue for the 1-2-3 furniture system.
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???
This is probably one of the coolest items you can find as a Panton collector – Verner Pantons original portofolio with original photos! There is much more photos from this as you can see under “My collection” – Literature”. The first picture is a hand signed silver gelatin photo of the artist himself. Supercool! Sorry […]
I have recently been on a new “Pantour” to meet some people that worked with Panton. One of them gave me a lot of pictures and catalogues. Here is a mix of the catalogues but you could easy spend your whole evening looking through every picture located under “My collection” – “Literature”. There is much […]
