Geometri Sun Yellow/Gold is just one of many classic fabric designs from the
imagination of Verner Panton. The Geometri pattern originated in 1960 and was
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 Sun Yellow/Gold has an immediately recognizable
design of yellow and sun gold (think tangerine) 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 Sun Yellow/Gold 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.
