The Amoeba Highback is, just as with the classic Amoeba, a product of the designer and architect Verner Panton and both are produced by the Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra. Panton's products have always had a high recognition value, not least because the designer is known for his organically curved forms - the most famous example being without question the Panton Chair. Thus with the Amoeba Highback from 1970 one finds no straight lines or parallel edges. Instead, the unusual seating offers a shape reminiscent of curve created by single, flowing movement and a physical object characterised by the particularly high, curved backrest which offers a cosy retreat, even in open spaces. The unconventional Vitra lounge chair is available in numerous colours and is a comfortable must-have in every living area.
