“I want to design furniture that grows up out of the floor,” said Verner Panton. “To turn the furniture into something organic. Which never has four legs.” Pushing materials to their limits was a passion of this Danish architect and designer, who always approached design challenges in unconventional ways. His cantilevered stacking chair (1960) was the first single-material and single-form chair to be made, and it’s been continually improved and updated by Vitra through three decades of development in plastics technology. As striking as a modern sculpture, the Panton Chair is crafted into a single piece of strong, flexible polypropylene that’s wonderfully durable and easy to clean. Suitable for residential and commercial use. Made in Italy.
