Some pictures from the blue office in progress.
Some pictures from the orange room when the last layer of orange paint is up in the ceiling. I will soon start with other rooms.
This Light Sculpture prototype is also new for us. It is actually 4 smaller “cubes” put together into one tall. I haven´t had the time to put in light bulbs yet but more pics will come later. We will use them together with the bigger one in our upcoming pink bedroom.
Another cool piece that arrived to my girlfriend today – A rare Light Sculpture from 1981. It was made by Dansk Akrylteknik but only a few prototypes was made and it never went into serial production.
A new piece for the collection. This Holmegaard prototype plate comes from the range of different homeware pieces designed in 1984. The glass plate is hand blown. Verner also designed the series of “New Wave” lamps at this time with a similar wave relief.
Three Panton fabrics from 1985 arrived today. All in mint condition.

Some quick pictures of the turquoise room in progress.
Through a norweigian friend, I just now realised the Astoria Hotel in 1960 had these golden Topan lamps in the room “Gulleplet” (The Golden apple).
The fourth layer of turquoise paint are now ready. Still some smaller things as painting door frames and such are left but it’s taking shape.
Another thing arrived today as well. This book covers the story of the Taunus and Pausa factory that printed almost all of Verner Panton’s fabrics. Unfortunatelly it is in german wich I don’t understand very well…
Picked up a rare Topan lamp in gold from an auction house today. I have earlier only seen a few of these golden ones (actually in a café in Göteborg). This one also comes from Sweden but not from the same café. It would have been interesting to know it’s history since it looks quite […]
