Mid Century Modern Vintage Verner Panton Kurve Textile, Country of Origin: Denmark, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — Danish furniture and interior designer, Verner Panton, designed this vintage textile which features his signature repeated “Kurve” pattern. Here, the trademark pattern is elongated and transformed by the soft, earthy tones. Each of the three patterns are almost identical and share the same color scheme where the deepest brown shade is placed at the outermost line and the color gradient descends from light browns into a creamy beige at the center. In lieu of the warm, natural palette of this textile, the design transmits an organic feeling – the fluid pattern may draw associations of images found in nature to some viewers, such as mountains, waves, or clouds. Verner Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen and was best known throughout his long career for his modern, innovative, and futuristic designs.
