This is probably the most difficult move I have ever done… Our aubergine room will be rebuilt so I moved some things to the attic. The Living Tower was separated into two parts and there was about 1 cm on each side to lift it up through the stairway – after I removed the […]
Also this rare lamp came today. A small table version of the Wire Lamp by J. Lüber.
Two lamps showed up today. First up is this special spotlight version of the Topan lamp from Louis Poulsen. You can adjust the angle of light by a special mounting on top of the lamp. Very cool!
Today I got a souvenir from the book shop at Der Spiegel publishing house at their original location. It is a kind of table cover that you should put on a round table to get a similar table as the ones at Der Spiegel kantine. It measures 70 cm in diameter. The previous owner bought […]
Another cool thing that arrived today is this heavy enamel broschure holder from the early 70:ies. Emalco was the company who made all Verner Pantons enamel work such as Flowerpot lamps, wall panels, tables and more. Before 1971 the company was named Emaillerie Corgemont so this has to be from when they changed name […]
Today two early Verner Panton fabric designs showed up. First we have a “Polette” curtain from Unika Væv 1965. The pattern are inverted when seeing it from behind. The white fabric “En” (means “One”) are made by Vereinigte Werkstätten in München, Germany 1963.

I got sunny regards from Glenn the dog in Switzerland.
These vintage ads for Heart Cone Chairs arrived today. You can see more like this at “Drawings and Posters” under “Collection”.
Just painted this small garden house in “Verners” green colour. The Panton familly had their summer house in the same tone.
This showed up today. The biggest version of the “Circle” fabric in multicolour. Really a nice fabric and this was what I needed to have all the different Mira Spectrum fabrics in the biggest pattern in multicolour as framed fabrics.
A friend just picked up these four Pan-Top lamps from 1980. The thing that makes these lamps very special are the colours. It also tells where they have been. There were no serial produced yellow or pink lamps like this. The only place that had these special coloured lamps was the Circus building in […]
