Vitra Panton Classic Chair

Verner Panton, 1959

Germany

Having conceived a design for an all-plastic chair made from one piece, it took Verner Panton several years to find a manufacturer. He first came into contact with Vitra in 1963 and together they developed the Panton Chair, which was presented in 1967. It was hailed as a sensation and received numerous prizes. The original version of the chair with a glossy lacquer finish is still marketed today under the name Panton Chair Classic.
