Verpan launches unknown Panton-chair

Have a seat in this fully upholstered dining room chair, Series 430, from 1967

This year, Verner Panton (1926 - 1998) could’ve celebrated his 90th birthday. Series 430 is Panton’s first chair on four legs and one of the pieces that are going to mark Verpan’s celebration of one of Europe’s most trendsetting and versatile dersigners.

The chair is launched in September at selected stores in Scandinavia, Europe, America and Asia.

Verpan and Verner Panton’s widow Marianne Panton have chosen to relaunch Series 430, because the organic shapes, pleasant upholstery and high level of comfort is more current than ever.

Panton’s ambition was to create a dining room chair that would be as comfortable as an armchair. This is why Series 430 has a broad, convoluting backrest and an upholstered seat with elastic webbing, so as to better support the weight of the body and give a relaxed posture.

Verpan has made no corrections to the original drawings by Panton, but have brought them up to the modern day measurements and standards for duration. And with a black powder-lacquered steel frame Panton has created a chair so delicate, that it can easily be moved again and again.
