About the Designer
Verner Panton Denmark (1926 - 2004)
Born on February 13, 1926 in Denmark, Verner Panton is known as one of the most remarkable innovative talents of 20th century design and architecture. While growing up, he longed to become an artist, but showed little talent for painting and drawing. Despite this, he won a place at the technical college in Odense. After completing his studies on Odense, Panton moved to Copenhagen in 1947 to enroll as an architecture student. Finally in 1955, Panton started his own design office. Besides being a great designer of carpets, Panton also designs furniture, lamps, fabrics, curtains, room and space designs, watches and accessories. "The main purpose of my work is to provoke the people to use their own imagination" - Verner Panton .

Convinced that rooms and interior design have a decisive influence on people's motivation, performance, and health, Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire, and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support. In order to attain this goal, Vitra has worked with their specialized team and renowned designers.

Vitra is vigorously persistent in creating products of the highest quality. Once in the factory, the Vitra staff manufactures the furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product. The focus on quality does not end at the factory door. Providing clients with premier service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to further ensure the high quality in all Vitra products, Vitra has set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.
A classic shape from an icon in design

If your looking at these chairs you probably already know the history behind the designer and most likely are like me, a fan of aesthetically pleasing design!!! Basically five stars on principle just because of the sheer beauty of this chair with the fluid design and saturated pigment of the injection molded product. I love the matte finish on these chairs, although I know the originals were high gloss this understated finish adds a bit of sophistication to the design in my opinion. Of course there are hundreds of knock-offs out there but they are easily spotted by there coloration and the bracing moldings that can be seen from the side and back at the 90degree curve... in this case the original is affordable and well worth the addition to your design collection!
elegant and VERY comfortable

I own a few classic designer chairs - eames dkr and plastic side chair, the victoria ghost, and the philippe starck masters chair. Among these the panton is absolutely the most comfortable. If you have a lot of space, go with the panton!
Love these chairs!

I purchased four chairs in white to surround my white mid-century style circular kitchen table. It looks like the chairs were made for this table. I couldn't be more pleased. Great quality, affordable, and phenomenal design.
better than Disney

The outrageous shape is sublime and utterly comfortable. It reminds me of the mushrooms in "Fantasia." A classic like no other.

The chairs are beautiful. The only complaint was that the box was pretty beat up when we got it. We were worried that the chairs might have been damaged but luckily they weren't.

Perfect for kids room or closet space! Not meant for a long sit time - light and easy to move. Durable and simple to clean - too low for a desk or dining table. True white - love it!!!
Great Practical chair!
Jerry from Fort Collins, CO– Verified Buyer
Looks pretty simple, but sure is comfortable! Requires no assembly, so ready to use right out of the box.

Well the two chairs ordered came very quickly. I love the design of the chair but I didn't realize they were not a shiny red plastic. Very sturdy and comfortable chair no doubt. Perfect for the kitchen. Just took it out of the box, no assembly required. I would order again and again. I feel the price should have been lower even though I paid a sale price for them. I guess that's my only complaint. But overall, everything is cope static.
