CH7141 Fiberglass Chair


Inspired by Verner Panton, "Panton Chair" 

Interesting Facts:

  • The Panton stacking chair, or "S" chair, is officially the sexiest chair ever made. It has appeared on the cover of Vogue (well, Kate Moss was in the picture too. All right, so she was naked) and it featured in a 1970s article in which a model demonstrated how to undress in front of your husband.
  • Its designer, Verner Panton, had the idea in 1960, on a visit to a factory making safety helmets and buckets, according to the Design Museum. But it would be several years before he could find a manufacturer who was able to mass produce it. Made from a single piece of cantilevered plastic with no back legs, it was the first of its kind.
  • After studying with another legend of design, Arne Jacobsen, Panton created the Cone chair in 1959. So many people gathered to see it in a New York shop window that the police ordered it be removed. He then moved on to make the first inflatable furniture and, in 1967, the S was born.
  • Panton fell out of fashion during the 1970s but then, in the 1990s, the S was in vogue – literally – as mid-century modern became fashionable again. He won more awards and the chair was put back into production. He was invited to design an exhibition in his honour in Copenhagen in 1998 but died 12 days before it opened.
