Vitra Overview

Verner Panton, 1999

The Panton Chair is a furniture design classic. Verner Panton created it back in 1960, and together with Vitra, he developed a version that was ready for series production (1967). It was the very first single mould all plastic chair. Since its market launch, the Panton Chair has undergone several production phases. Not until today has it been possible to produce it in line with Panton’s original idea – namely from tough plastic that is consistently dyed and has a matt surface.

The chair offers great sitting comfort thanks to its cantilever base, flexible materials and shape, which is shaped to the human form. Its sculptural shape means that it looks good by itself or grouped together. It can be used indoors and outdoors.

The Panton Chair has won various design prizes world-wide and graces the collections of numerous renowned museums. Its expressive shape makes it a true 20th-century design icon

About the designer:

Verner Panton was one of the most influential designers of the 1960s and ‘70s. Born in Denmark, Panton relocated to Switzerland in the early 1960s. He became known for his original and imaginative designs in the fields of furniture, lighting and textiles. Installations such as the legendary ’Visiona’ exhibition demonstrated Panton’s masterful use of colour, which is a hallmark of his work. Vitra has been committed to comfortable seating and the workplace for over 50 years. All Vitra products benefit from this extensive experience.
