Some time ago I was lucky to be offered a hugh collection of documents, drawings, photos, and test pieces from Verner Panton´s work. As an example of it you can here see test pieces of different qualities for Verner Panton´s wall-to-wall carpets made by Mira-X in 1976. In the first picture you see the upper […]
At last some new pictures of the Salon Rouge at Pantonworld.
We have more lamps than plates in this familly…
Some better pictures of the Salon Rouge in progress – now with red “Mira-Tülle” curtains. For our last house I arranged the length of these curtains. Now I need to do that all over again… It is really a hard work since it´s about 30 meters width!
Next step to set up the Salon Rouge cantine was to put up some Mira-X “see through” curtains in red. These curtains doesn’t come from Salon Rouge originally but they come from another cantine Verner Panton made the interior for.
The hardest work is now done and the next step is to finish some details and paint some walls ready. I will probably also hang longer red “see-through” curtains in the window. After this room I will start to make a yellow kitchen wich is next to this room.
At last! Everything is connected and up. Some small adjustments are left and the ceiling panels need to be back on place but at last some light over the dining table.
Just picked out and washed 10 small Flowerpot lamps out of the boxes from Salon Rouge. The electric needs to be re-installed before I put them up in the ceiling so I have some hours of work ahead.
I love the orange color but I am extremelly tired of painting now. Second layer of orange now done, at least two more layers to go.
This orange wall color is the same as the “orange” in the Mira-X color system. It works pretty good as background colour to red enamel.
Another red Panton Chair came the other day. Both chairs are made in 1971 (july and october according to the stamp) and they match perfect with the Salon Rouge table wich originally had Panton Chairs to it.
Today I received more and better pictures of the Salon Rouge from 1971/72. I hope to soon be able to mount the Salon Rouge interior at Pantonworld. You read more about Le Salon Rouge and Emaillerie Corgemont here: Le Salon Rouge
