“Chair with removable cover” was designed by Verner Panton in 1985. Only a few prototypes was made. Fritz Hansen made the steel frame and you supose to use different fabric covers from Mira-X. The shape reminds of the Cone Chair from 1959 but with a touch from the 80:ies.
Here comes something really cool. This is Verner’s own prototypes for the Visiona 2 cupboards in 1970. They can be opened by sliding the door inside them. I will show you more pictures later. They have the exact same diameter as the first edition Illumesa table and the table fits perfectly into the little edges […]
Next piece to show you is the prototype for the Relaxer Chair in 1973. It is much smaller than the later serial production model.
The Panton Chair is without a dubt Verner Panton most well known design. The next “new” piece in the collection I will show you is Verner’s own prototype / pre-serie chair for the Panton Chair made in 1967! I have seen another prototype /pre-serie chair in yellow/light orange wich also comes from Verner’s home, at […]
Some more pieces for the collection. These are orange and red parts from a model Verner Panton built in 1976. The “Umbrella Roof” was meant to be built in a much larger size but he only made the smaller version as a test. This was more the size of toys for kids.
This Pantonova table is also new for me. It is the first time I have seen this with a black tinted glass plate. I didn’t realised it first but when the plate is dark, it makes really nice mirror pictures in the plate compared to the regular transparant glass plate.
These Bobinette Geometri curtains from 1960 are amongst my favorite Panton curtains. They are not easy to find and are often expensive if they come up. I try to find enough of them to cover a 950 cm long window in the new house. This pair have a width of 320 cm together and with […]
I bought these Topan lamps some time ago. I took a chance thinking they were matte grey lamps from the first edition but my misstake, they were sandblasted coloured Topan lamps – just as they were described… They look pretty cool anyway.
Next Verner Panton piece to show you is this short pile Geometri VI carpet from Unika Vaev 1960. It is the second short pile version I have ever seen of this rare carpet. It measures about 228 x 228 cm.
A lot of Verner Panton pieces has arrived latelly but I haven´t had the time to take pictures of everything. Here you have another round Mira Romantica carpet from 1975. It measures 250 cm in diameter. I had one in the collection sinc earlier. The condition is perfect.
Today I received a fantastic piece of Panton history. This is a piece of the gigantic scene curtain at Cirkusbygningen in Copenhagen 1984. The pattern is based on the “Kvadrat I” design from 1970 but is a little modified here. It has only 7 colours instead of 8 and the 7:th colour is a golden […]
Here comes a new important piece for the Pantonworld collection. This is the pianist´s Cone Stool at Hotel Restaurant Astoria 1960. It is one of the first versions of the stool with a small “keyhole” under the seat. You see the pianist sitting and playing on this chair in one of the pictures above. It […]
