In the 1950s, while Scandinavian designers were paving the path with organic designs made of natural materials, architect Verner Panton (1926-1998) was concocting futuristic creations out of plastic with a Pop aesthetic. Born in Denmark, Panton was introduced early on to Danish design legends Pøul Henningsen and Arne Jacobsen. Henningsen introduced Panton to product design—Panton knew he wanted to be an artist and Henningsen helped him find his focus—and Jacobsen introduced him to Danish manufacturer Fritz Hansen, for whom Panton designed the Bachelor Chair and Tivoli Chair. Panton's boundary-pushing designs (inflatable furniture, chairs made of molded plastic) were capitalized by Vitra, who manufactured his Flying Chair and, perhaps Panton's most famous work, his eponymous chair. Over 40 years since its creation, the Panton chair rivals the Eames lounge chair in popularity among today's modern design enthusiasts.
Founded in 1950, Swiss company Vitra produces furniture and accessories that continue to define and shape the landscape of modern design. Begun as a family-owned company, Vitra has manufactured products by design icons including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Frank Gehry, and Verner Panton. From the Panton Chair originally designed by Verner Panton in 1960 to George Nelson’s Wall Clocks, Vitra’s designs have remained a staple in contemporary homes and offices since the 1950s. The company continues to produce its historic pieces as well as newer design classics including Jasper Morrison’s cork stools, designed in 2006. In addition to its transcendent design manufacturing, Vitra also boasts an impressive design campus that includes the renowned VitraHaus and the Vitra Design Museum—one of the world’s leading museums of design.
