panton amoebe highback chair

Design Verner Panton, 1970
Laminated structure, foam upholstery
Made in Germany by Vitra

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

The Amoebe was originally dreamed up for Panton's Visiona installation. It is a marvelous example of close-to-the-floor lounge furniture and embodies the spirit of the early 70's. Amoebe highback has a flexible backrest that curves over the head of the sitter, forming a sculptural canopy. In this way, Amoebe highback creates a sense of shelter and seclusion - especially in large, open spaces.

As one of the most influential and remarkable designers of the era, Verner Panton has created objects, spaces and art. His original, space age designs have won numerous awards and been exhibited in museums and private collections around the world. His ideaologies and design concepts are apparent and have had great influence on 21st century design.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926 – 1998) created innovative, futuristic designs in vibrant colors with a variety of materials. Many of his well-known furniture designs have remained in continuous production and others have been reintroduced. Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art graduating in 1951. He subsequently worked in the architecture office of Arne Jacobsen. Panton started his own design and architectural practice and was well known for his innovative architectural proposals including a collapsible house, the Cardboard House and the Plastic House. In 1953 Panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. He returned to Denmark full of ideas, one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. Based on his vision of a one-piece one material cantilever chair, Panton in collaboration with Vitra developed the first cantilever plastic chair. The Panton chair became his most famous design and has been in production since 1967.
