50 years after the launch of Panton Chair, Vitra, in its Barcelona showroom, pays tribute to this chair: several designers from different fields will reveal their personal interpretation of the chair. The authors, almost all located in Barcelona, are: Sandra Rojo (photographer), Hey (graphic design studio), TAKK (architecture studio), Xavi Mañosa (potter) and Coco Dávez (illustrator).
After several years of collaboration between Verner Panton and Vitra, Panton Chair was all set to be produced as the first one-piece plastic cantilever chair. Thanks to a revolutionary manufacturing technique, the exclusive sculptural design of the chair was presented for the first time in 1968. It quickly became the symbol of an entire era.
All visitors to the exhibition will have the chance of winning a Panton chair through a draw.
