Panton Junior

Verner Panton, 1959/1960

With its bright, cheerful colours and smooth curves, the Panton Chair has always been a favourite of children – both as a chair and as a plaything. This led Verner Panton to consider the the idea of producing a child-size version of the chair together with Vitra over 35 years ago.

Proving impossible at the time for economic reasons, this aim was finally achieved in 2008 with the introduction of Panton Junior, a chair based on the designer's original plans. Identical to the regular model with regard to material and shape, the children's chair is approximately 25 percent smaller than the full-size Panton Chair. This makes Panton Junior, which is available in six different colours, an ideal chair for children in nursery and primary school.
