The visionary Danish designer Verner Panton spent
many years trying to perfect his concept of a chair molded into a
single, continuous form. Together, with Vitra he developed the first
prototypes in the early 1960's. The chair went into series
production in 1967 and remains one of the most recognized and
celebrated designs of the 20th century. Vitra's "Classic" Panton
Chair is constructed of hard, molded plastic foam and finished with
a high gloss lacquer paint. The piece is absolutely timeless and
looks stunning in white, red or black.
There is a cheaper version called the "Panton Chair"
for only $215.
