Verner Panton already pre-recorded the shapes of the Pop Art in the 1950s. His reduced and still bribing C1 Armchair still bribes with his design clearness.
Verner Panton’s career as designer reached its first climax in the end of the 1950s: The Danish pre-recorded elements of Pop Art with geometric furniture series and he clearly admitted the Scandinavian modern elegance of shaping with the processing of his frames. The most famous models of this series are those he initially made for a restaurant: Cone Chairs and Heart Cone Chairs.
Verner Panton used the form of a half-sphere for the C1 Armchair, which is produced by Vitra, for the first time: Stored in a position which allows turning it and slightly inclined, the cushioned seat offers high comfort – for relaxing hours as well as to sit upright. The C1 is usable in private homes, hotels or receptions because of its clear shape, and it therefore looks even more gorgeous together with more of its kind.
Vitra manufactures the C1 Armchair out of a stainless steel frame, a laminated plastic bowl and a polyurethane seat. The soft foam ergonomically adapts to the body, ensuring relaxing seat comfort.
