Vintage Verner Panton Textile, Denmark, Mid 20th Century — This vibrant textile, designed by famed Dutch designer Verner Panton, spotlights a brilliant reddish pink hue. One of Panton’s simpler, most minimalist designs, this piece vibrates with the energy of its warm and optimistic bright color. Arranged in subtle but striking gradients, vertical stripes evoke the modern, urban feel that inspired much of Panton’s designs in the postwar years of the 1960s. The bright hue seems inspired by the psychedelic color palettes of the era, but Panton balances this vivid color with a clean design. The bold color and geometric composition combined with the organic quality of the textile create a striking juxtaposition of hard and soft design elements.
