ON ANY FUTURE PURCHASE

Verner Panton (1926-1998) is considered one of Denmark's most influential 20th century furniture and interior designers. He was a unique, inspirational and charismatic personality with a special sense for colours, shapes, lighting and space. He created innovative, funky and futuristic designs in a variety of materials using vibrant and exotic colours. His style is unmistakeably '60s infused yet sufficiently timeless to have remained significant and popular to this day.
Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art and started his career at the practice of Danish architecture heavyweight Arne Jacobsen. He was inspired by his mentor’s obsession with new materials and technologies but turned out to be an "enfant terrible" and soon started his own design and architecture office. He quickly made a name for himself with his innovative architectural proposals, including a collapsible house, the Cardboard House and the Plastic House.
By the end of the 1950s, his unconventional chair designs, with no legs or discernible back, started to attract a lot of attention. Panton was in a way creating Pop Art people could sit on. His Cone Chair from 1958 had a massive impact and the world suddenly had a "star designer", totally in sync with his era.
Now officially a visionary, Panton was free to turn his wildest dreams into reality. He developed inflatable furniture and created the "Flying Chair" system, essentially hanging loungers from the ceiling, completely re-imagining how people would sit together in a living area. He also created a series of "total environments", radical and psychedelic interiors that were an ensemble of his curved furniture, wall upholstering, textiles and lighting thereby combining spectacular shapes, colours and patterns.
In 1968, after years of research and development, he introduced the first version of his über-iconic cantilevered Panton Chair, the very first single-form injection-moulded plastic chair. The sleek, sexy S-shaped seat became the first "It chair", featured in magazines, on TV and in movies around the world.
Beyond his iconic chairs Panton created instantly recognizable geometrically patterned textiles and lighting fixtures but also designed watches, clothes, home accessories and even a self-assembly weekend home.  

"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colours. By experimenting with lighting, colours, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their fantasy and imagination and make their surroundings more exciting." – Verner Panton

High-quality carpets based on designs created by established talents such as Verner Panton: that’s the philosophy of DESIGNERCARPETS by Teppich Drechsle. Each rug is handmade exclusively for the company’s owner and managing director Stefan Drechsle. Working closely together with international designers and architects, DESIGNERCARPETS produces carpets and kilim rugs for private individuals, luxury shipyards and fashion labels.

The workshops are located in the Orient and the Far East with the principal production site in Kathmandu, Nepal, where the rugs are knotted by hand. "This style of rug knotting is a very traditional production method. Centuries-old expertise about traditional manufacturing techniques is uniquely combined here with exclusive, high-quality materials and a unique flexibility with regard to colours, patterns, shapes and dimensions", Drechsle says.

The family business has a zero-tolerance policy towards child labour and is strongly committed to respectful and mindful dealings with all its co-workers. This commitment was recognized and rewarded by the attribution of the GoodWeave certification. (The GoodWeave standard for the carpet industry is designed to address issues inter-related to child labour that include adult labour working conditions, fundamental human rights and environmental impacts.)

About the owner and managing director:

Stefan Drechsle is a publicly appointed and sworn expert for oriental and flat-weave rugs from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Hochrhein-Bodensee. He writes appraisals for private individuals and insurance companies, performs structural and laboratory analyses to identify materials and coloring agents, teaches seminars, and delivers lectures for advanced training.

His thorough expertise acquired and developed through decades of involvement with carpets and rugs has an invaluable impact on DESIGNERCARPETS’s outstanding production.
