Panton Chair


"Most people spend their lives living in dreary, beige conformity, mortally afraid of using color. The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting." -Verner Panton

I've been in love with the beautiful curves and the uniqueness of the Panton chair since I found out about it in our Furniture Design class. This chair for me is one of the most beautiful designs ever created that's why I've been using it in my design projects in school. :)



Created by Verner Panton in 1960, and with the assistance of Vitra technicians a version was finally ready for series production in 1967. The Panton Chair is the very first ever to be constructed from one continuous piece of material. Since its market launch, the Panton Chair has undergone several production phases. Not until today was it possible to produce it in line with Panton's original idea, namely from consistently dyed, tough plastic with a matt surface and an affordable price. The Panton Chair has won various design awards world-wide and graces the collections of numerous renowned museums. Its expressive shape makes it a true 20th-century design icon. The chair offers great seating comfort thanks to the cantilever base, together with its shape and flexible materials. It can be used on its own or in groups.
Panton chairs are a solid plastic chair made in a single mold finished with a matt surface. Read more at http://hivemodern.com/pages/product226/vitra-verner-panton-chair

I am planning to invest on Panton chairs in the near future and I'll definitely use them in my projects with clients. I know they'll be interested with this unique chair! :)
