The designs of Verner Panton are some of the most recognizable and well known to come from Denmark during the 1950’s and 60’s. Panton is probably best known for his design of the S chair and shell lamps, but in addition to home furnishings he also designed a number of fabric prints. One of the best known fabrics designed by Panton was Geometri I, originally for the Hotel Astoria in Trondheim, it along with many of Panton’s prints would help to define the look of the 1960’s (See the hotel below). One Panton print that still looks fresh today is his 1965 print Unisol 001. The fabric can be found on the Rapson Rapid Rocker offered exclusively through our partnership with YLiving.
