"Most people spend their lives living in dreary, beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colors. The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting." - Verner Panton

In the mid-1950's, Verner panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. In 1958 he returned to Denmark full of unconventional ideas... one of which evolved into the iconic Cone Chair. Defying gravity, the cone was both futuristic and shocking... so much so that when it was exhibited in a shop window in New York City police had to order its removal due to the traffic chaos its presence created. A comfortable club chair for everyday use, Vitra has faithfully re-issued this classic in close collaboration with the Panton estate. The Cone Chair takes its name from its cone-shaped silhouette as well as its sister design, the Heart Chair.

Production notes: Glass-fibre reinforced shell with light upholstery and seat cushion. Tonus wool fabric cover in red, orange, black or blue. Brushed stainless steel crossed base.
