...Or put another way, while works such as, and amongst many others, Living Tower, Amoebe Highback, Sitting Wheel, arguably also the eponymous Panton Chair, may have a very rational basis and are appropriate, meaningful, tools for daily life, they aren't the work of a rational adult creativity, but rather are the result of a kindergarten creativity... And thus, one assumes, we haven't asked, but we assume, that he demanded a higher license fee for the white version of his Panton Chair by way of compensating him for compromising, and for the publication of a version of his chair that he, presumably, didn't sit comfortably upon...

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?
Vitra regularly develop new colour schemes and as such the palette of available colours is always changing. Colours from former collections can however not be supplied as the necessary colour granules are no longer available. Should you have any specific colour requirements please contact our service team.
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.
How do I recognise an original Panton Chair?
Verner Panton's signature is embossed in the foot.
