A new Panton book with about 350 pages from Strandberg publishing in Copenhagen just came out. Since Pantonworld was contributing with ca 40 pictures + info, I planned to go there to meet Marianne Panton and others for the release venue. Then I realised I couldn’t get my scheduale together to have time for everything. […]
NEW “T4” PICTURES
Some better pictures of the super cool Deck Chair “T4”.
