Now, I am pretty convinced that my yellow / blue “WALL ELEMENT” is a prototype for the “LUMINOUS WALL ELEMENT” at the VISIONA 2 exhibition in Cologne 1970. Made for Bayer Chemicals, West Germany. I have a handwritten “certificate” from Marianne Panton that Verner Panton was the creator of my panel and I already knew […]
Here is a very early Panton lamp. The Topan lamp with a difusor were only produced 1959. To the left you can also see a Topan lamp with reflector. That one came 1965. In the background you can see a “regular” Topan lamp without a difusor or reflector. There is a really good website about […]
Today I got another blue SKARRIDAN enamel panel from SKARRIDSØ. Verner Panton designed these as kitchen doors in 1980. At last, I have four in the same size. I will probably use these in a formation of four together as a group. By the way, here you can see the whole kitchen: http://www.verner-panton.com/furniture/archive/phase/1172/
Two mobile pictures from my professional refurnisher. The aubergine chair now has buttons. He also made some adjustements to make it look perfect! He used my other turquise chaiselongue as a template when refurnished it. Lucilly, I had found original Miralastic fabric covering an old sofa before. I throwed the sofa away but kept the […]
This incredible bedspree and pillows are made by Johannes in Germany. He used 4,7 kilometers of threads to make it… I think it is an incredible project! Thanks for sharing this with us Johannes!
I am looking for more enamel panels designed by Verner Panton. Please let me know if you have any for sale!
This german Louis Poulsen catalogue from december 1973 showed up today. Here is only the lamps by Verner Panton but you can see more lamps by the company Louis Poulsen in the catalogue. In the future you can see the whole catalogue under “My Collection” – “Literature”. I have the literature there in some sort […]
I did some more test with the prototype wall panel / lamp for VISIONA 2. I have now putted some light in it and also made it possible to hang on a wall. Still need some adjustements for the blue “bump”… But I think it will be very cool in the end!
A friend just sent me this picture from Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen, Denmark.
At last! The book “Verner Panton – Die SPIEGEL Kantine” took a lot of time to come out but today I received it. I bought my copy at eBay and I think there is more left if you are interested. It costed under 30 euros (plus shipping). The book looks very nice even if I […]
When I realised that some of the green panels at VISIONA 2 were lamps not only wall panels, I thought of this prototype wall panel I got some years ago. The colour of this prototype wall panel did not really fit into Verner Pantons other colours from this time period. I couldn´t understand why. Now […]
Here is a cool thing… Some of the green wall panels at the VISIONA 2 exhibition 1970 were not only panels – they were lamps! If you look at the pictures above you can see that the colours are a bit different for the ones to the left compared to the others. The big “bumbs” […]
