Verner Panton originally designed the Cone Chair for a restaurant in Denmark. It takes its shape from the classic geometric figure for which it is named. The padded shell forms the back and armrests and, together with the soft seat cushion, creates an exceptionally comfortable armchair, which is mounted on an elegant stainless steel swivel base. The matching Cone Stool makes an ideal companion for the Cone Chair as a stool or ottoman.
Originally designed for a Danish restaurant, the Cone Chair takes its shape from the familiar geometric figure for which it is named. The cone-shaped seat is mounted at its point on a stainless steel swivel base. A semi-circular padded shell extends upward to form the back and armrests, thereby creating a very comfortable armchair. The matching Cone Stool is an ideal companion for the Cone Chair, yet it also makes a striking solo piece.
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.
