Item Description

Verner Panton’s career as a designer first peaked at the end of the 1950s. With a series of furniture featuring basic geometrical shapes he pre-empted Pop Art ideas and yet with the base frames clearly adopted the elegance of Scandinavian Modernism. With the C1 armchair Verner Panton chose a section of a sphere. On swivel bearings and slightly tilted, the upholstered seat shell is comfortable – both for relaxed sitting leaning back and for upright sitting. The C1 can be integrated into private apartments, hotels or reception areas, cuts a fine figure in larger groups. These particular chairs where used for circa 6 years in a very well known Design Hotel. The third photo shows the chair in situ in the hotel rooms. Marked with Vitra labels.
