Cone Chair

Verner Panton, 1958

Verner Panton has designed a chair especially for the Kom Igen restaurant in Denmark: the Cone Chair. As its name suggests, the body of the chair takes the form of a cone. Standing on its tip, a semi-circular padded shell extends upwards to form the back and armrests, thereby creating a very comfortable armchair. The entire body is covered in fabric and the Cone Chair is supported by a flat, slender four-star base made of brushed stainless steel.
