Born on February 13, 1926 in Denmark, Verner Panton is known as one of the most remarkable innovative talents of 20th century design and architecture. While growing up, he longed to become an artist, but showed little talent for painting and drawing. Despite this, he won a place at the technical college in Odense. After completing his studies on Odense, Panton moved to Copenhagen in 1947 to enroll as an architecture student. Finally in 1955, Panton started his own design office. Besides being a great designer of carpets, Panton also designs furniture, lamps, fabrics, curtains, room and space designs, watches and accessories. "The main purpose of my work is to provoke the people to use their own imagination" - Verner Panton .

Perfect for kids room or closet space! Not meant for a long sit time - light and easy to move. Durable and simple to clean - too low for a desk or dining table. True white - love it!!!

This is such a unique chair. It adds so much personality and pop to my breakfast nook. I bought 4 in white and it has brightened the eat-in area. The chairs were individually well-packaged and arrived within the stated time frame. I would definitely repurchase.

love it: SO stable (despite my 3 year old standing on it and leaning over the back), stylish, and easy to clean.

Well the two chairs ordered came very quickly. I love the design of the chair but I didn't realize they were not a shiny red plastic. Very sturdy and comfortable chair no doubt. Perfect for the kitchen. Just took it out of the box, no assembly required. I would order again and again. I feel the price should have been lower even though I paid a sale price for them. I guess that's my only complaint. But overall, everything is cope static.

If your looking at these chairs you probably already know the history behind the designer and most likely are like me, a fan of aesthetically pleasing design!!! Basically five stars on principle just because of the sheer beauty of this chair with the fluid design and saturated pigment of the injection molded product. I love the matte finish on these chairs, although I know the originals were high gloss this understated finish adds a bit of sophistication to the design in my opinion. Of course there are hundreds of knock-offs out there but they are easily spotted by there coloration and the bracing moldings that can be seen from the side and back at the 90degree curve... in this case the original is affordable and well worth the addition to your design collection!
