“COLLECTION P” TABLE

Another ”new” heavy and rare table arrived yesterday…This time a 40 years old ”floating” marble table ”P4635” from the ”Collection P”.The table measures 46 cm in diameter and the total height is 35 cm so it’s quite small but in the same time easy to place.Manufacturer: Artline Wohndecor in Germany 1981.

PRE-VERSION ILUMESA

Wohoo! I was contacted by a nice man who said he most likely had a red Ilumesa light table from the ”Visiona 2” exhibition 1970.He bought it from a german dealer 15 years ago who claimed he got it from a person that took it right out from the exhibition. It’s not easy to know […]

SIXS

The design ”SEXS” (six in danish) from the Universa collection was one of the few textile designs Verner did that was not for Unika Vaev or Mira-X. The Universa collection was printed by ”Vereinigte Werkstätten für Kunst im handwerk” in Munchen 1963.I have this design in turquoise/white tones and blue/red tones since earlier but no […]

ANATOMIE LIPS IN ORANGE

Never expected to see this Anatomic series ”Mouth” / ”Lips” textile in orange! Usually when you see these rare printed textiles with this pattern, they are red. It’s actually also the first time I see this textile design with a paper tag from the original manufacturer Poul Boheim too. It comes from a person who […]

1961

The ”black issue” of the Mobila magazine from august 1961 shows almost the whole range of Verner Panton’s early design from Plus Linje and Unika Væv. Most of the design you see there were prototypes when they took those pictures. For example the ultra cool ”Trumpet Chair” – T6.One example of that chair is now […]

PEACOCK CHAIR

Woop! At last some matching cushions for the Peacock Chair from 1960.Now this relaxing room with hues of turquoise, blue and purple feels like a place even worthy the designer himself. (Thinking that Verner Panton’s favourite colour was blue).Another great job from @ptv.se (who made the foam work) and @goteborgssyfabrik (who made the fabric work). […]

OPTIK

Maybe another carpet? This time a mega rare ”Optik” carpet in purple tones. The pattern was designed by Verner Panton in 1969 for Unika Vaev. It’s a kind of mix between a flat rug and a long pile rya. I have only seen this carpet once (an orange version) in an old picture from Verner’s […]
