Panton junior chair

By Vitra

£138.00

  • Description

    The Panton Chair has always been a favourite of children. They not only like its bright, cheerful colours and smooth curves, but the fact that it is as much fun to play with as it is to sit on. Soon after its introduction, Verner Panton began to consider the idea of producing a child-size version of the chair together with Vitra.
    What was financially unfeasible over 35 years ago is now possible: Vitra introduces the Panton Junior, whose production is based on the original plans of Verner Panton. Identical to the regular model with regard to material and shape, the Panton Junior is approximately 25 percent smaller and available in seven different colours. This makes it an ideal chair for children in pre-school and primary grades.

    Verner Panton

    Best remembered for his psychedelic colours and designs from the 1960s, Verner Panton (1926-1998) had a design career spanning 50 years. It started with an assistant position for Arne Jacobsen 1950-53 where Panton was responsible for the first colour scheme for the Ant chair. After opening his own design studio in 1955, Panton created everything from early inflatable furniture, carpets and lamps to the radical Cone wire chair. In the early 1960s Panton moved to Basel and when the rest of the world caught up with his vision of vivid colours, new materials and soft wall surfaces he rose to great fame. His most well known chair, simply called The Panton Chair, was designed in 1960 and went into production in 1967. It is now reissued by Vitra in a new, low cost plastic. His Panthella floor and desk lamp is still in production as well as the popular Flowerpot pendant. Panton worked intensely up until his death in 1998.
