A convex and concave line, paired with periodically widening and narrowing rows give the VP Onion 4 a plasticity and three- dimensionality consciously used by designer Verner Panton. This is additionally supported by the alternately linked colours grey, white, red and black, whereby an elegant black forms the center of the VP Onion 4 rug and thus manifests the core. With this special design and coordinated manufacture VP Onion 4 is certainly not a carpet, but a unique work of art.

The special exclusivity and livability of the VP Onion 4 rug is supported by the high-quality manufacture and processed material, pure new wool. Pure new wool is seen as a renewable and biodegradable raw material, ecologically valuable. Its further positive characteristics:
sturdy, stain-resistant, durable, warm, air purifying, regulates moisture and fire resistant. Especially used for a carpet as the VP Onion 4 rug the interior design benefits instantly by an increase of comfort.

Flowing forms, brought to home textiles, were a big topic in the 1970s and are back to top today. The three-dimensional VP Onion pattern of designer Verner Panton inspires: on the floor as well as an eye- catcher on the wall. Four different colour combinations of the VP Onion carpet by Designercarpets allow the best possible adaptation to the ambience. Whether in the living room, dining room, bedroom or foyer – organic shapes as on the VP Onion 4, one of Verner Panton’s most defining design themes, creates an elegant and lively accent in your home.
