Designed by Verner Panton in the 1960s, Panton chairs are one of the most unique and sought after pieces of furniture ever conceived. The design of these chairs is derived from the single-form injection-casted process, which was initiated by Panton for his chairs. If you would like to have a piece of modern furniture, which appears to be vivid and sprightly as opposed to being dull, and is available in attention-grabbing designs, then Panton furniture may be what you are looking for.
If we talk about designer chairs, the chairs by Panton are one of the most reasonable priced models available on the market, with most chairs costing less than $200. Producers have identified the unique appeal that Panton designs can hold for the youth, and hence have started manufacturing chairs in miniature sizes, which makes them ideal for kids and also for grown-ups. The key design on offer is a single flowing, curled piece of fine plastic in a solid color. The design provides ample support while being equipped with a comfy curved back. These chairs are one-piece in character, allowing the colors to dominate explicitly.
Chairs by Panton are offered in a wide range of color types to meet the needs of different types of customers. Besides this, the chairs are a lot more long-lasting as well, compared to other designer equipment, as plastic is used as their base material and because the chair is one-piece, with no moving components in its structure. One can call this chair a Verner-Panton chair or a Vitra-Panton chair, but remember that the latter term is usually used to refer to smaller chairs.
Another popular chair by Panton is the heart cone-shaped chair. This is different from the main Panton design as it makes use of a special metal bottom to provide support to the cone. Apart from being comfy, this chair can be an ideal addition to the drawing room or a high-end coffee bar.
It doesn't matter which of the above model you choose, it is important to know how to differentiate between a genuine Panton piece and a replica. The genuine Panton furniture may cost significantly more given its irreplaceable artwork. The replica, on the other hand, is much more cheaper to suit the budget of the common man; however, it may not offer the elegance of a genuine design.
