The Panton Chair is considered one of the masterpieces of Danish design. It was the world’s first molded plastic chair when it was released in the 1960s, and remains a timeless, sleek design, 60 years later.
Verner Panton’s s-shaped creation is featured in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and dozens of other design museums around the world.
There’s now a limited release called the Panton Chair Duo, which features contrasting vibrant hues on front and back. Available in 5 colorways, the chairs would make a powerful impact in a discerning home. From $3000.
“With its curved form, the Panton Chair seems more like a freeze-frame of undulating motion than a chair. The limited-edition Panton Chair Duo is a universal homage to the work of Verner Panton, who used colours as a tool for enhancing shapes, patterns and emotions. The Panton Chair Duo features two contrasting hues – one on the front, the other on the back. The colour combinations reference the legendary Fantasy Landscape, which Verner Panton created in 1970 for the Visiona 2 installation in Cologne.”
