Design I Love: Verner Panton “VIPP” 1992

The Verner Panton‘s  VIPP chair, created in 1992, consists of 4 lacquered linked bentwood rings, either with a cane seat and backrest or leather upholstery. The runners are made of lacquered wood.

Verner Panton is considered one of Denmark‘s most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative, funky and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colors.

Verner Panton passed away in 1998, but Panton’s most well-known furniture models are still in production (mostly at Vitra).
