his first fabric design. Geometri was first displayed at the 1961 Plus-Linje
furniture show in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1963 this outstanding decorator fabric
received the International Design Award in the United States.
Geometri Red/Carmine has an immediately recognizable design
of red and carmine circles and squares. The large circles measure in 5
3/8" in diameter, the medium-sized circles measure 2 5/8" in diameter, and the
small circles are 1 1/8" in diameter. The dimensions of the squares measure 6
5/8" H by 6 3/4" V for the large, 3 1/8" H by 3 1/4" V for the medium, and 1
1/2" H by 1 5/8" V for the small.
Geometri Red/Carmine 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 Geometri design.
