Verner Panton (1926-1998) was renowned for the flair and élan
of his furniture, lighting and fabric designs. His work in a variety of media
demonstrated an aesthetic defined by curves and audacious colors. His resistance
to convention can be seen in such innovative designs as the Flying Chair
and the S Chair.
Although Verner Panton worked with a variety of materials,
some of his most enduring work can be seen in his vibrant textile designs. Optik
Sun Yellow/Orange is just one of many classic fabric designs from the
imagination of Verner Panton. The geometrically designed Optik pattern
originated in 1969 and creates a visual effect reminiscent of the Optical Art
Optik Lilac/Violet has an optically challenging design of
horizontal stripes in lilac and violet with the colors alternating and broken up
to form circles. The composite circles measure 3 7/8" in diameter. Each stripe
is 3/8" thick. The Optik fabrics are based on the original design from 1969.
Optik Lilac/Violet has so many possibilities. Draperies, wall
hangings, seat cushions, pillows, lampshades, slipcovers and table covers are
just a few of the items that can be made to show off the shapes and colors of
Verner Panton's perpetually modern Optik design.
