With Vitra's Panton Chair Classic Chrome Edition 2018, a design dream of Verner Panton comes true: mirrored surfaces have always fascinated designers, but the Panton Chair lacked the technical possibilities. Now, for the 50th anniversary of the design classic, Vitra launches a limited edition chrome edition of the Panton Chair Classic, whose sturdy surface shines and is an absolute must for lovers of Panton and collectors alike.


Product type Multi-purpose chair

Dimensions in mm
Material Full hard foam shell made of, polished metallic

Please note: Every Panton Chrome is individually made by hand, consequently the surface can have small pores, inclusions, etc. Such are unavoidable owing to the nature of the manufacturing process and as such do not constitute a fault or ground for complaint.
Function & properties The brilliant mirror effect of the Panton Chair Classic Chrome Edition is created by a metallization; an effect achieved via in highly specialized manual work in which several layers of paint are applied one after the other. The fact that not only the surface of the chair is metallized, means that on the one hand it is more robust and scratch-resistant, and on the other hand more flexible and stable, so that it can easily yield to the sitter and lightly swing.
Care When cleaning the Panton Chair Classic Chrome Edition always use a soft, damp cloth and a mild, household, detergent.
