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 White/Black 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 movement.
Optik White/Black has an optically challenging design of
horizontal stripes in black and white with broken up, alternating colors that
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 White/Black 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.
