VITRA – Verner Panton
This chair was designed by one of the most influential designers of the 1960s and ´70s – Verner Panton, born in Denmark. He became known for his original and imaginative designs in the fields of furniture, textiles and lighting. Creating a comfortable, all-purpose plastic chair moulded in a single piece was one of his ambitions. He had been looking for a manufacturer for a long time when he first had a contact with Vitra in 1963. The Panton Chair was then developed by Vitra and finally introduced to the public in 1967. This piece of furniture received numerous awards and one of the first models belongs to the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Panton chair is available with a lacquered finish in black, white or red.
