Amoebe was created by Verner Panton in 1970 for his famous Visiona installation, which included several versions of this lounge piece. It embodies the exuberant spirit of the early 1970s. Thanks to its upholstered surfaces and the flexible back shell, Amoebe offers a high level of comfort. The Amoebe Highback version of the chair has a flexible backrest that curves over the head of the sitter, forming a sculptural canopy. This striking accent gives the chair a sense of shelter and seclusion. Both chair versions are available in a variety of brightly coloured fabric covers.
Verner Panton was an influential figure in the development of design during the 1960s and ’70s. After moving to Switzerland in the early 1960s, the Danish designer became known for his inventive, novel ideas for furnishings, lighting and textiles. The masterful use of colour was a hallmark of his work.
