Panton Move Table

panton move table

Design Verner Panton, 1972
Powder coated metal frame, MDF with Fenix nanotech
Made in Denmark by VerPan ApS.

More than 40 years ago, Verner Panton was struggling with some of the same issues that we have today; how to make a table both simple, sturdy and flexible. Panton wanted the quintessential table - a top and four legs, one in each corner - but he also wanted it to be easy to knock-down and he wanted it to be flexible once assembled.

The idea for the Move table came to Panton when he had his own studio in Basel. At the time Verner Panton's studio was quite large and very busy and there was no room for an extra table in the office. To solve the problem, he just put lockable castors on all four legs of his desk, and the Move table was born. This way, whenever visitors came to see him, Panton would simply Move the table to the center of the room and everyone could stand around the table and see what Panton wanted to show them.

The table top is made of 20mm MDF with Fenix nanotech material offered in white laminate and white lacquered edge or black laminate with black lacquered edge on a frame made of powder-coated square steel tube. Includes chrome plated lockable castors (wheels). Optional black castors may also be specified. The Move table offers flexibility to any dining, office or meeting setting, or wherever you want to use the Panton Move table. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

Verner Panton

Verner Panton (1926 – 1998) of Denmark created innovative, futuristic designs in vibrant colors with a variety of materials, especially plastic. Though his style was very "1960s," he regained popularity at the end of the 20th century. As of 2004, his most of his well-known furniture models are still in production. Already an experienced artist, Panton studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen, graduating in 1951. During the first two years of his career, 1950–1952, he worked at the architectural practice of Arne Jacobsen, another Danish architect and furniture designer. Panton started his own design and architectural office and became well known for his innovative architectural proposals, including a collapsible house (1955), the Cardboard House and the Plastic House (1960). In the mid-1950's, Panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. He returned to Denmark in 1958 full of unconventional ideas, one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. In 1960 Panton was the designer of the very first single-form injection-molded plastic chair. The Stacking chair or S chair, became his most famous design and was mass-produced.
One of the true rebels and pioneers in the world of lighting and furniture design, Verner Panton is an icon. True to his vision, his creative language shocked surroundings when he started designing and continues to leave people amazed today. Adding a touch of Panton instantly transforms a room. For many years Verpan has produced his famous lamps, carefully merging quality and originality.
