Vintage Mid Century Kreis Verner Panton Textile, Country of Origin: Denmark, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — This Verner Panton textile, featuring two duplicated circles, is a deceptively simple concept upon first viewing. The circles, which are spaced apart proportionately, are inverted mirrors of each other. Whereas the top circle fades from the lightest to the darkest colors, the bottom circle is reversed and begins with the darkest to the lightest colors of the same palette. Using Panton’s trademark formula of a gradient spaced over eight lines, these colors are soft, earthy, and clean. The background has a lighter wash which amplifies the colors of the circles. This textile’s composition is balanced, poised, and sublime. Verner Panton was best known throughout his established career for pioneering futuristic and modern designs.
