Verner Panton Cone Chair Vitra
Vitra, imported from Germany

Vitra Modern Cone Chair 1958 by Verner Panton. Verner Panton "Cone" Shaped Chair by Vitra. The beautiful Cone Chair is one of the icons of mid 20th century modern furniture design. The Cone Chair was designed by Danish designer Verner Panton in 1958. Verner Panton's Cone Chair has the trademark good looks of Panton's signature design style. The Cone Chair takes its name from its cone-shaped silhouette. Defying gravity, the Cone Chair was both futuristic and shocking... so much so that when it was exhibited in a shop window in New York City police had to order its removal due to the traffic chaos its presence created. A comfortable club chair for everyday use, Vitra has faithfully re-issued this classic in close collaboration with the Panton estate. Made by Vitra in Europe. Verner Panton design can be found in the collections of the Vitra Design Museum, MoMA Design Collection, Victoria & Albert Museum as well as numerous public- and private collections.

Originally designed for a Danish restaurant, the Cone Chair takes its shape from the classic geometric figure for which it is named. The cone-shaped seat is mounted at its point on a stainless steel swivel base. A semi-circular padded shell extends upward to form the back and armrests, thereby creating a very comfortable armchair. The matching Cone Stool is an ideal companion for the Cone Chair as well as the Cone Table, yet it also makes a striking solo piece.

"Most people spend their lives living in dreary, beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colors. The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting." -Verner Panton

In the mid-1950's, Verner panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. In 1958 he returned to Denmark full of unconventional ideas... one of which evolved into the iconic Cone Chair.

Verner Panton (1926 - 1998) was born in Denmark but lived in Switzerland for most of his life. Among the giant of Modern Design, Verner Panton established a unique reputation for his exuberant originality and tireless experimentation. Verner Panton created lamps, furniture and textiles - and was also a sought-after interior designer. Although he was at the forefront of Space Age Modern Design, Verner Panton's contribution was anything but mainstream. He enthusiastically embraced new materials, he splashed with a bold color palette, and he playfully imbued many of his sculptural creations with a strong graphical expression - without ever compromising on quality of workmanship. Verner Panton's iconic works have emerged as contemporary design classics - as strikingly inventive now as they were 50 years ago.
