by Verner Panton, 1988

Panton Tray by Georg Jensen in size medium is a decorative and food- safe bowl made of shiny stainless steel. Despite its robustness, the special design makes the bowl look filigree and light, because Panton Tray medium is reminiscent of a crumpled sheet of paper. Thus, Panton Tray medium combines avoidable contrasts, the look of lightweight paper with the robustness of solid stainless steel.

The antifunctionalist movement in 1980s design is reflected in Panton Tray as well as in a number of other design classics: from Ron Arad’s’ Bad Tempered Chair’ to Philippe Starck’s ‘Juicy Salif’ lemon squeezer for the Italian cult label Alessi. “It does not matter what things look like, but what emotions they trigger,” Starck is quoted in an article in the Rheinische Post. For ‘Juicy Salif’, it was never about functionality, it was just about the spectacle.

In contrast to that, Panton Tray proves to be very practical and versatile in everyday use. Not only for foods such as fruits, vegetables, pastries, nuts and other nibbles, Panton Tray offers a refreshing alternative to traditional bowls made of glass, metal or plastic. Also for keys, all sorts of odds and everything out of a jacket pocket like change and cards, Panton Tray is the ideal collecting station.

To illustrate the design language he invented for Panto Tray, designer Verner Panton is said to have taken a sheet from producer Georg Jensen, crumpling it up and pulling it apart again. Voilà c’est Panton Tray!

As typical for Verner Panton, Panton Tray medium plays with the reflection of light and shadow and the reflection of other design elements in the room. Then as now Panton Tray medium is manufactured by Georg Jensen in both, stainless steel and silver. Thus, the residential object is suitable for both, indoor and outdoor use, and undoubtedly belongs to the genre ‘decorative art of the 20th century’. A must-have for every design-oriented household and available in original versions at design interior specialist TAGWERC.
