Panton Chair Classic

Danish designer Verner Panton spent many years thinking about how to produce a plastic chair moulded in one piece. Together with Vitra, he came up with the first prototypes in the 1960s and Panton Chair went into series production as of 1967. Unlike the cheaper Panton Chair Standard in solid plastic, Panton Chair Classic is made of rigid expanded plastic and has a lacquered surface.

The Panton Chair is recognised as a classic of modern furniture design: one of the first models belongs to the Museum of Modern Art in New York. True to the original, the Panton Chair Classic is available with a lacquered finish in black, white or red.

Materials: hard foam plastic shell, surface painted with a gloss lacquer.
Design: Verner Panton, 1959/60
Manufacturer: Vitra

Verner Panton's First chair was designed for a restaurant in Tivoli, Copenhagen in 1955. The chair, called The Tivoli Chair, was used indoors as well as outdoors. The chair can be used both at the conference table, the dining table, in the cafeteria or outside on the terrace or in the garden. The chair was awarded best classic at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair 2004 by the magazine Bo Bedre.
