Verne giltleather panel

An Archive design is the insperation for the “Verne” we are introducing today.

The Verne is  based on an early 18th century, possibly late 17th century design

The original panel is part of the Collection of “Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs” http://www.lesartsdecoratifs.fr/ in Paris

The symmetrical structure of the design reminds the rich embroided damasks or silk

fabrics .  The structure of the design points to the much earlier Louis XIV  style period.

Lut removed the most of the ornamantation which at the sight of it gives all the sence to the term Horror Vacui and tends to weaken the design

 By doing so she undelined the main structures of the design,

thus creating a strong and well balanced pattern

 The pattern above  is composed out of two identical parts produced on one and same embossing mould, the central theme is kind of a compass.

To produce this part of the design one needs four of the identical parts.

Lut didn’t want a solid ground paint and choose instead to apply a textured

  “deep sea” paint .

This deep sea paint  and the Compass like central theme were enough hints to baptise the panel by the name of Verne in hommage of the great  writer of the “Twenty Thousand leagues Under the Sea” Jules Verne

As a matter of fact I can see that desing doing very well in the Nautilus
