The boldly shaped Panton chair was designed in the early 1960s in the workshop of Verner Panton. Despite a difficult manufacturing process, the first console chair made from a single piece of plastic was launched on the market and, what's more, it boasts the title of a design icon. The chair, produced in collaboration with Vitra, was initially made from fibreglass, but due to the fragility of this material, it was re-manufactured in 1999 in a stronger polypropylene with a matt finish.
The Panton chair is easy to like because its novel shape makes it ergonomic and the material makes it flexible and therefore very comfortable. The light weight also allows the chair to be easily handled, and in addition to being placed indoors, it is also suitable for outdoor spaces.
The Panton Chair is available in other colour variants and also in a children's version.
