Verner Panton



The Panton Chair is an icon of twentieth-century design and probably the most famous cantilevered chair of all time. Conceived by Verner Panton in 1960, the Panton chair was developed for serial production in collaboration with Vitra in 1967. It's aesthetically graceful curves and highly comfortable seating position have led to numerous international design awards, inclusion in the collections of many prominent museums and a global fan base.

Panton Chair was the first entirely plastic chair produced in a single piece. Since its introduction, Panton Chair has gone through a number of production phases. Only today can it be produced according to the original idea – from solid-coloured, hard-wearing plastic with a matt-finished surface. It is available in a choice of bold and subdued colours.

For Summer 2017 Vitra have released a special edition of the chair in 'Sunlight Yellow' - available while stocks last.
