Verner Panton - Vitra - Dinner chair (2) - Panton S Chair
Italy - 1975-1999 - Resin/Polyester

2 RARE Panton Verner S by Vitra fibreglass chairs, glossy black, from 1989.

Swiss production from May 1989, made during the unrepeatable production of the ‘80s in reinforced expanded rigid polyurethanic resin, in an elaborate and cared-for shape in production during these 10 years, design by the Dane Verner Panton used in the 1980–1989 period, never used since then, given the high production cost. Today fibreglass is used in shipbuilding to make luxury yachts.

Perfectly preserved. 2 abrasions on each chair on the right and left side. Signs of normal wear on the surface. Please look at the photos carefully.

RARE VERNER PANTON chairs with the Danish designer's signature.
The fibreglass carrying frame of the ‘80s series (1989) has turned brown, which can be seen when the chairs are lifted, they weigh 8 kg each.

They are not PLASTIC!

Price of a new Verner Panton chair: €1,200.00.

Cult design chairs, they were produced thanks to the expensive but reliable moulding process with reinforced polyurethane foam, no longer in use due to the high production cost.
