Free play with shapes and colors
Back in the 1960s and 1970s Verner Panton (1926-1998) was rewriting history with his designs. During his later years of creativity he was one of VS’s design partners.
A number of significant chair designs came out of this close collaboration, where we see Panton’s enormously creative and variable interplay of color and shape. Chairs should restrict us and our desire to sit as little as possible. "A chair must be dynamic – you should be able to sit on it comfortably." Once again, Verner Panton and VS have together created a compelling seating program.
Verner Panton for VS
After 1993, during VS’s collaboration with Verner Panton, various families of chairs emerged with different seat shells and frames and all based on one principle: a deceptively simple one but with a strong and conspicuous identity.
The cantilever rediscovered: The seat was inclined forwards – an ergonomic improvement.
Stackable, four-legged chair with linking system.
Height-adjustable swivel chair with 3D-tilt mechanism for dynamic sitting.
Light metal chair with linking system for use in large areas.
