Chair #98

—Designed by Vernor Panton

The Panton Chair is a classic in furniture history. This is the same designer who brought us the heart cone chair (Chair #45 on this blog). The chair has gone through various stages over the years with new developments in plastic, and thanks to the current availability of polypropylene, the design of a comfy, single-piece chair is now easily accessible. It comes in five jazzy colors. Sort of reminds me of a kiddie slide.

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