Chair #324

—Designed by Verner Panton

Amoebe was created by Verner Panton in 1970 for the famous Visiona installation, which included several versions of this lounge piece. It is a great example of close-to-the-floor lounge furniture and captures the spirit of the early 1970s. Amoebe Highback has a flexible backrest that curves over the head of the sitter, forming a sculptural canopy. In this way, Amoebe Highback creates a sense of shelter and seclusion - especially in large, open spaces. Reminds me of the car the Flintstones drove away in. Yabba Dabba Doo!
