Vitra Panton S Chair

Product information

The swooping fluid silhouette of the 1967 S chair is instantly recognisable. The S-shaped cantilever seat is made from flexible polypropylene and perfectly balances your bodyweight, letting you rock gently back and forth while maintaining a comfortable yet perfectly upright posture.

Made from a polypropylene seat shell, dyed through and given a soft matt surface for durability.

Danish designer Verner Panton was a former architectural engineer, whose psychedelic 'Pop' style and innovative techniques - the S chair is made from a single mould - shook the world of Scandinavian design in the 1960s, but remain as vivid and contemporary as ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish seating, but the colour? chair just as described and delivered quickly. If anything the colour in the flesh is rather more "bilious" that it appeared on screen...but overall a success! 07 July 2011
