Panton Chair Duo
With its curved form, the Panton Chair seems more like a freeze-frame of undulating motion than a chair. The limited-edition Panton Chair Duo is a universal homage to the work of Verner Panton, who used colours as a tool for enhancing shapes, patterns and emotions. The Panton Chair Duo features two contrasting hues – one on the front, the other on the back. The colour combinations reference the legendary Fantasy Landscape, which Verner Panton created in 1970 for the Visiona 2 installation in Cologne. Vitra developed the Panton Chair Duo in close collaboration with the Panton family. It follows the same production principle as the Panton Chair Classic, with a glossy lacquered surface that optimally accentuates the bold colours of the various combinations. The Panton Chair Duo comes in five different pairs of colours marked with a 'limited edition' label.
Verner Panton was an influential figure in the development of design during the 1960s and ’70s. After moving to Switzerland in the early 1960s, the Danish designer became known for his inventive, novel ideas for furnishings, lighting and textiles. The masterful use of colour was a hallmark of his work.
