The unique pattern of the Geometri carpet is based on two geometric figures, circle and square. At the Geometri rug these round and angular elements are arranged to ever-changing patterns. The colours black and white emphasize the contrasting interplay and make the Geometri carpet in black and white to be a design classic of timeless elegance and value.
In the same year, in which Verner Panton sketched the pattern Geometri, he lined out two objects with it. He formed the showroom for the textile company Unika Vaev in New York / USA completely in black- and-white. Geometri in red–orange dominated the ambitious interior design in the Hotel Restaurant Astoria in Trondheim / Norway. While Verner Panton sketched Geometri already in 1960, the general public discovered this form of decoration not until end of the 1960s. This makes it clear, what Verner Panton was: a mentor and pioneer of the big epoch of Pop Art Design.
