Happy new year! This picture comes from the exhibition “Visiona 2” in Cologne 1970. Pretty cool environment! See you in 2016!
The big Typ A lamp is now moved so I can continue the painting of the other half of the room. It goes very slow… But the magenta colour is super in this room. I will also use curtains in the same colour when ready.
I got a nice present from a fellow Panton collector – A Polythema catalogue with Verners design from the 90:ies.
The third layer of magenta paint is now up. Two more layers to go… And then at least five layers of paint in the other part of the room…
Merry Christmas! I had a quite unexpected gift from my mother. A “Three light”-bulb made for the Panthella lamp wich have three steps for different strenghts of the light. People who uses a standard lamp in their Panthella lamp for the first time always think their lamp is broken. It first works after some […]
I have waited for this Type H Ball Lamp some years now and the previous owner promised me to get it when he was “ready” with it. Some weeks ago he told me the good news and today it arrived! He bought it cheap from a lady at a fleamarket in Paris about 15 […]
A little “relaxing” christmas project is to change the blue room into a magenta room (and with a more matte finish). I liked the earlier blue but all other colours on this floor are warm so this probably match better. Unfortunatelly, I know this colour tone needs about five layers to cover properly and I […]
A nice pair of “Geometri I” curtains in a “see through” fabric came today. These are also called “Bobinette” after a model who promoted them in 1960:ies. Verner Panton designed these for the danish company Unika Vaev in 1960.
Some other very rare pictures of the Varna Restaurant 1971. This was the main corridor from the entrance. If you have any of the lamps or fabrics, please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have now started to scan the incredibly cool slides I got from the swedish agent for Unika Vaev, Mira-X, J. Lüber, Louis Poulsen and some other Verner Panton related manufacturers. His name is Sten Hermansson and here you see his Unika Vaev showroom at Lidners Plan in Stockholm in the early 60:ies. The orange […]
At last I got some more info about the strange Wire Cone Chair I bought some months ago. I have now found pictures and more info with the very same chairs! There was a very cool disco in Odense, Denmark, called “Disco Tiffany” and in 1981 they ordered 80 chairs, 19 tables, 6 Bar Stools, […]
Cool interior with “Circle” carpets designed by Verner Panton for Mira-X 1970.
