DescriptionVerpan introduces two chairs from the original 1-2-3 series designed by Verner Panton in 1973. The series originally comprised 20 different models with variations in seat height, arm rests and feet. The new series includes a dining room chair and a lounge chair, both models are available in a standard version made from moulded foam rubber upholstered with fabric and a deluxe version in leather. The original commission was to design a furniture programme that combined a series of different functions with the basic requirement of good sitting comfort. The chairs should also have a simple and natural design, so they could fit into any environment as a functional element. It took Verner Panton three years to develop the series, and the result was a unique chair concept where Panton worked systematically with design and function based on a defined theme, which he described as follows:"I wanted to design furniture that grows up out of the floor, to turn the furniture into something organic and never with four legs." The chair originally featured a light frame construction made from steel upon which fabric could be mounted. In the new version, Verpan has used foam rubber for increased sitting comfort and to ensure a tight and even upholstering. Verpan intends to add more models to the series over the next few years.
