Chair of the Week: The Panton Side Chair

Chair of the Week: The Panton Side Chair

Designer Verner Panton was instrumental in bringing both color and plastics to the Danish furniture industry, previously stuck in the rut of blond wood. His side chair, a real curvy number, came out originally in fiberglass during 1967. Among the first chairs manufactured in a single piece, the Panton Side Chair has been reissued in polypropylene by Vitra.

At the moment, Conran Shop is offering them for just $221.

Not too bad for a design classic.
