The Vitra Panton chair Classic is the result of many experiments undertaken by Verner Panton in the late 1950s together with Vitra in the search for a cantilever chair made entirely of plastic. The chair in gloss lacquered rigid foam stands out with its distinctive curved shape that could only be realized thanks to a revolutionary casting process and which has subsequently been awarded numerous prizes. The Vitra Panton chair Classic is more than a comfortable seat, but also a unique sculptural design object which adds that special something to any room.


Set of six Classic Panton chairs


In the early 1960s, the Danish designer Verner Panton together with the Vitra Development Team, realized an idea which had preoccupied him for many years and produced a plastic chair from a single moulding. In 1967, the Panton chair went into mass production, it was immediately regarded as a sensation and won many awards. One of the first chairs is exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Today the Panton chair belongs to the classics of modern furniture design.
