Verner Panton’s career as a designer first peaked at the end of the 1950s. With a series of furniture featuring basic geometrical shapes he pre-empted Pop Art ideas and yet with the base frames clearly adopted the elegance of Scandinavian Modernism. The best-known models from the series are the Cone Chairs and Heart Cone Chairs, originally designed for a restaurant. With the C1 armchair created around the same time, Verner Panton for the first time chose a section of a sphere. On swivel bearings and slightly tilted, the upholstered seat shell is astonishingly comfortable – both for relaxed sitting leaning back and for upright sitting. The C1 can be integrated into private apartments, hotels or reception areas and cuts a fine figure in larger groups.
