The Panton Chair is a classic in the history of furniture design. Conceived by Verner Panton in 1959, the chair was developed for serial production in collaboration with Vitra (1967). It was the first all-plastic chair made in one piece with a cantilever design. Since its introduction to the market, it has advanced through several production phases. Only since 1999 has it been possible to manufacture the chair in accordance with its original conception – out of durable, dyed-through plastic with a lustrous matt finish.

The Panton Chair has received numerous international design awards and is represented in the collections of many prominent museums. Due to its expressive form, it has become an icon of the twentieth century.
