Panton Junior chair

Panton chair

 
The Panton Chair is a classic in the history of furniture design. Conceived by Verner Panton in 1960, the Panton Chair was developed for serial production in collaboration with Vitra. It was the first chair to be manufactured completely out of plastic in one single piece. Since its market launch in 1967, it has advanced through several production phases. Only since 1999 has it been possible to produce the chair in accordance with its original conception – out of durable, dyed-through plastic with a lustrous matte finish.
 
The comfort of this chair results from the combination of a cantilever structure with an anthropomorphic shape and a slightly flexible material. It can be used individually or in groups and is suited for indoor and outdoor environments. The Panton Chair has received numerous international design awards and is represented in the collections of many prominent museums. Due to its expressive shape, it has become an icon of the twentieth century.
 
Verner Panton was a highly influential figure in design development in the 1960s and 1970s. Having moved to Switzerland at the beginning of the 1960s, this Dane made a name for himself as an innovative, experimental designer of furniture, lamps and fabrics. Characteristic of his work was the virtuosity with which he used colour.
