The two coloured papers in the first pictures above comes from a close co-worker to Verner Panton. The story tells these papers worked as colour tests when he and Verner developed the aluminium version of the Fun lamps around 1965. Now I realised these papers were pictured in old photograps from Pantons appartement in […]
I must show you my danish friend Jørgen who brought me the Circus building chair… He almost looks like Verner Panton!
Another new piece for the Pantonworld collection. Here you can see one of the chairs from the Circus Building in Copenhagen 1980. The upholstery fabric is actually the same as for the older Plus Linje furniture.
Some better pictures of this rare MIRA-X offset print. It measures 62,5 x 62,5 cm with the printed area of 58,5 x 58,5 cm. I have seen this type of print some times but I actually don´t know the story behind it. It is usually framed so it could either be some sort of museum […]
This rare Verner Panton offset print came today. It is mounted in a broken frame but the print it self seems to be in good condition. The pattern is from Verners design for Mira-X 1969 and shows kvadrats in different sizes and colours. The size of the print is 62,5 x 62,5 cm.

Today I worked at a fair in Göteborg. When it ended I realised they were going to throw away 400 square meters of red wall-to-wall carpet. I was lucky to get the best pieces from their red carpet but also two blue, three black and four grey carpets. In total I got 17 carpets […]
I thought you might like some pictures showing the former Panton familly residence in Basel.
It is today the norweigian National Day so here comes a picture from Norway. This very chair (early version of the Wire Cone K2) was a gift from Plus Linje to the owner of the Astoria Hotel in the early 60:ies. The same chair was exhibited at the Myresjö Pavillion in the spring 1960. You […]
Verner Panton´s own gate lamps. They are totally unique and were specially designed by Verner for the house in Binningen between 1972-87. After that, they were replaced with the ones you see in the last picture above (with me in front of the gate). The base is enamelled steel and the large cupole are made […]
New pictures of the Mirror Sculpture that Verner designed 1965. The american company Beylerian had it for sale in the 70:ies.
This wall element comes from the Visiona 2 exhibition in Cologne 1970. A full room was covered but as far as I know this is the only remaining piece.
