The VOGA.com reproduction of Verner Panton's C1 Chair stands at 74cm tall,and is a gorgeous combination of crisp,smooth steel and soft,tactile cashmere. The seat follows the contours of the lower back,and is designed to look as though cut out of a sphere. Its shape makes both leaning back and sitting upright effortless,while the strong central column and cruciform base provide a safe,secure platform to take the weight of the human body. Its swivel feature makes it adaptable for any room or occasion.
THE STORY BEHIND PANTON C1 CHAIR
Released as part of a range which included both the Cone Chair and the Heart Chair,the C1 Chair was designed by a designer at the very top of his game. As one of the forerunners of the psychedelic movement of the 1960s,Verner Panton was one of the very first designers to experiment with simple geometric shapes and bright eye-catching colours. The C1 was the result of his continued obsession with the sphere,and how it could be moulded,sculpted and deconstructed to create stunning,original furniture. But the sleek,stable form of the steel base added a touch of Danish Modernism to a design that would become an icon of the Pop Art movement.

Throughout his life Panton created innovative designs that combined materials in unconventional ways and was greatly influenced by the impact of colour on his work . Verner Panton represents design without borders. Verner Panton's vision: to create design using unconventional techniques.
