Carpets

Author: Bianca KILLMANN Posted in Textiles

A real slice of cosiness

In the age of parquet, laminate and tile or stone floors carpets perform magic exactly at the right level of comfort into a clearly structured environment. All the better if the carpet is not only lying, but underlining the message of the other furniture and also draws attention to itself. Who is looking out for such an eye-catcher, will love the carpet design by Verner Panton. His creations are classic designs but anything but dusty. They carry such fine-sounding names as ‘geometri’, ‘sinfonia’, ‘roulette’ or ‘diamond’ and are knotted by hand or tuffted by the German company designercarpets by Teppich Drechsle in its own factory in Nepal. Thus the highest level of quality and individuality are guaranteed. The unique prints are not just items for fans of the retro designs. Panton’s textile works present colours and shapes in rarely seen harmony. Above all, the VP VIII acts as a colour study of his master. Whether round, rectangular or square shaped – starting from the center the colour circles change from the inside out of warm yellow, to orange, red, pink, purple, cold blue and end up with fresh green. As the VP VIII rainbow is manufactured in three different forms and two design types, there’s the carpet with white circles on a black background and black circles on a white ground only in the round version. With a diameter of 68 centimeters, only selected dealers offer the VP VIII in a decorative black cardboard.
