Product Information "I want to design furniture that grows up out of the floor," said Verner Panton. "To turn the furniture into something organic. Which never has four legs." Pushing materials to their limits was a passion of this Danish architect and designer, who always approached design challenges in unconventional ways. Panton spent three years developing his System 1-2-3 Series (1973), which has been rescued from the Panton Estate archives and brought back into production. The 1-2-3 name originally referred to the fact that there were three ways to get it, from a chair without padding to a deluxe, tufted version. With the relaunch, all of the chairs have the same comfortable padding, and only the upholstery options differ. The 1-2-3 Dining Chair is built on a swivel base for easy entry and exit from the table. Its cantilevered frame delivers slightly springy, pleasing support and a gentle waterfall edge behind your knees. Includes a certificate of authenticity and Panton's signature is stamped into the base. Licensed manufacture by Verpan ApS. Produced under license from the Verner Panton Estate Basel, Switzerland. Made in Denmark. Materials:Brushed aluminum swivel base; form-pressed wood frame; foam padding; full-grain, semi-aniline leather.
Product Information This pint-sized version of Verner Panton's cantilevered stacking chair is identical to the original in material and shape, but is approximately 25% smaller. Panton toyed with the idea of creating a child-size chair back in the 1960s, and drew up plans for its creation. Back then, production issues made the Panton Junior financially unfeasible, however the following decades brought new plastics technologies, and in 2006, Vitra introduced the Panton Junior. The chair is based on Panton's original plans, complete with the smooth curves and fun shape of the larger Panton Chair. It's crafted as a single piece of strong, flexible polypropylene with integral color that will not fade over time. Wonderfully durable and easy to clean, the Panton Junior is suitable for contract and residential use for children in pre-school and primary grades. This is a fully licensed classic. Materials:Batch dyed polypropylene with matte surface.
