Designed in 1973, The series originally comprised 20 different models with variations in seat height, arm rests and feet.
The new series includes a dining room chair and a lounge chair – made from moulded foam rubber upholstered with fabric and leather.
The original commission was to design a furniture programme that combined a series of different functions with the basic requirement of good sitting comfort. The chairs should also have a simple and natural design, so they could fit into any environment as a functional element.
It took Verner Panton three years to develop the series, and the result was a unique chair concept where Panton worked systematically with design and function based on a defined theme.
The chair originally featured a light frame construction made from steel upon which fabric could be mounted. In the new version, foam rubber is used for increased sitting comfort and to ensure a tight and even upholstering. Smooth serface version and butterfly base version are also availabe.
