Chair #42

—Designed by Verner Panton

Verner Panton was credited with creating the very first single-form injection moulded plastic chair. His Amoebe Lounge Chair shown here was originally dreamed up for Panton’s famous Visiona Installation in 1970. The playful name refers to the organic, flowing shape, and it's a FAB example of close-to-the-floor lounge furniture. The early model’s rigid internal structure, made of tubular steel, has now been replaced by a laminated back shell. This increases the flexibility of the backrest and greatly enhances the chair’s comfort.
