A Quintessential Mid Century Modern Vintage Green Color Verner Panton “Quadrat” Textile, Country of Origin: Scandinavian, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Verner Panton, a mid-century Danish designer and architect, built colorful worlds that created an immersive experience for the visitor. He is known for works that often create an optical illusion that distorts his simple geometric designs. Another hallmark of his work is vibrant color gradients. Many of Verner Panton’s most iconic furniture designs have recently come into production again as reproductions. This authentic textile would make an excellent addition to a room featuring classic Panton pieces.
Panton designed a series of textiles to complement his iconic furniture designs. Panton textiles were used to create table covers, pillows, bedspreads, and curtains. They were also used as upholstery. Panton would also create wall art in a matching theme. The arrangement of colors in this piece makes the lines appear to bend.
This piece is part of Panton’s “Quadrat” series which features squares with concentric color gradients. This classic work highlights the ability to use simple shapes and colors to create complexity. Panton also produced his Quadrat textiles in other saturated tones, including orange, brown, and blue. The Quadrat series was created in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Verner Panton was a visionary, and his artwork extended beyond the creation of individual pieces. He focused on the experience the visitor would have when they entered the space. His designs are full of energy. The artist used line and color to create movement in the pieces. In a Verner Panton room, you would often find contrasting colors and shapes within the same space. The interiors were minimalist in their furnishings, which highlighted the designs of the individual pieces. For instance, you might find curves next to squares and hard lines. You would almost always find contrasting jewel tones combined in unconventional ways.
