The Panton Chair is the epitome of the Danish designer's creative prowess. It not only bears the signature of his unique style but also holds the distinction of being the first cantilever chair in the history of modern design crafted from a single piece of plastic. In its form, color, and material, this chair encapsulates the disruptive and innovative essence the defines the designer's body of work.
Expanding beyond the original Panton Chair Classic with glossy lacquer finish, the stackable version further solidifies its versatility.

With a broad spectrum of color options, ranging from vibrant hues to softer tones, it caters to a diverse range of tastes and preferences.
With the System 123 series, Verner Panton continues his exploration for an alternative to conventional seating, or as he puts it, furniture that emerges organically from the floor, transcending the typical four-legged chair concept.
The result is a chair boasting a sinuous profile, offering two distinct bases – circular and butterfly – along with a variety of upholstery options and colors. It effortlessly stands out in the domestic landscape, exuding a natural and sophisticated charm.
Still devoid of traditional legs but now adorned with a distinctly geometric design, the Cone Chair, initially crafted for the Kom Igen restaurant, proudly takes its place in the Originals by Vitra collection. It remains a futuristic marvel, captivating today as much as it did yesterday, as it challenges and transforms the conventional notion of a chair and its proportions.
With the Series 430, Verner Panton effortlessly combines simplicity and comfort, crafting a chair that is as inviting as an armchair yet possesses the comfort of a lounge chair. Its minimal and refined structure features a fully upholstered seat and back seamlessly connected to a slender and lightweight outer frame.
