The first cantilevered chair made from a single piece of plastic. Danish designer Verner Panton spent many years thinking about how to produce a plastic chair molded in one piece. Together with Vitra he came up with the first prototypes in the 60’s and the Panton Chair went into series production as of 1967. It was not until 1968 after many attempts that Herman Miller Inc. finally succeeded in putting it into mass production. Unlike the “Panton Chair Standard” in Solid Plastic, the “Panton Chair Classic” is made of rigid expanded plastic and has a gloss painted surface. The one-piece plastic chair was regarded as a sensation and received numerous awards. The Panton Chair is recognized as a classic of modern furniture design; one of the first models belongs to the MoMa in New York. Made by Herman Miller and Vitra. True to the original, the “Panton Chair Classic” is available with a lacquered finish in black, white or red.
