BLACK vitra Panton DESIGN Chair - Modern Furniture - In the early sixties, the Danish Designer Verner Panton together with the Vitra Development Team, realized an idea of ultra modern seating which had preoccupied him for many years by producing a plastic chair from a single furniture moulding. In 1967, the Panton Chair went into mass production, it was immediately regarded as a sensation and won many awards. One of the first chairs is exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Today the Panton Chair belongs to the classics of modern furniture design. Photographs by Luca Bortolato.
