What is the difference between the Panton Chair and the Panton Chair Classic?
The Panton Chair Classic is constructed from rigid polyurethane foam with a gloss varnish finish, and as such is true to the version originally produced and marketed by Vitra in 1967. The Panton Chair is produced from a modern polypropylene and has a more matt surface. The polypropylene version was authorised by Verner Panton in 1999.
Is the Panton Chair available in other colours?
The Panton Chairs in the current regular Vitra colour palette are available separately. Vitra also regularly develops new colour concepts which reflect current trends. Chairs in colours from previous collections can no longer be supplied as the corresponding colour granules are no longer produced.
How much weight can a Panton Chair support?
The Panton Chair meets the "GS" test standards and is tested up to a load of 110kg. The way in which the chair is used is also important. Swinging, for example, causes a higher strain which can reduce the chairs lifetime.
The Panton Chair is widely considered as the first chair produced in a single cast, and thus thanks its position as one of the icons 20th century furniture design to more than its fluid dynamism. Initially the sculptural seat from the Danish designer Verner Panton was made of fibreglass-reinforced polyester, the handmade production however proved too expensive and soon became replaced by a more industrial Polysteron. Since 1990 the design classic has been produced as the "Panton Chair Classic" in the full-plastic version with high-gloss finish by Vitra, while Verner Panton also authorised a version with a matt surface crafted from dyed polypropylene, which as a "Panton Chair" offers the demanded quality at a reasonable price. Vitra also developed a junior version of the popular plastic chair in child-friendly colours and proportions, the "Panton Junior". But in whatever form, the ergonomic cantilever with its unique concave curvature is the legendary example of 1960s design, and as contemporary now a sit ever was.
