VP8, the round rug in colour combination black dots on white ground, is knotted by hand from pure new wool. It is a variation of the VP8 Rainbow that looks like a colour study by its master, architect and designer Verner Panton. If you like the design, but prefer more colour, choose the VP8 rug, made of pure new wool in rainbow colours. With a diameter of 68 centimeters, we also offer the VP8 black white in a decorative black cardboard case.

1968 – for those who have been there, a mythical year. It embodies the time of upheaval and set off. This experimental mood is reflected in the VP8 black white carpet. Large circles, which in turn are composed of small dots, shrink inwards and compose the design of the carpet VP8 black white. The colour scheme from the VP8 rugs in rainbow was again realized by Verner Panton in the installation ‘Colour Spaces’ in the Gallery Littmann in his hometown Basel / Switzerland. The invigorating and soothing effects of the VP8 Rainbow colours were experienced by visitors in a colour tunnel.
