imm cologne : available in spring 2017, VITRA has announced the launch of a special limited edition ‘panton’ chair in ‘sunlight’ color at imm cologne 2017. following verner panton’s idea that ‘you sit more comfortably on colors you like’, the german furniture brand are continuing to expand the chair’s color range at occasional intervals. this time, ‘sunlight’ – a bright, clear shade of yellow – adds an element of summer to whichever room or outdoor space it is situated in.

expanding its palette with a fresh, lively and bright hue, the ‘panton’ chair is a true design icon of the twentieth century. first developed by verner panton and VITRA fifty years ago, it finally reached production in 1967, followed by a new polypropylene version starting in 1999. it is renowned as being the first all-plastic chair to be manufactured in one piece, and was subsequently mass-produced afterwards. with its cantilever design, biomorphic shape and progressive manufacturing technique, the piece of furniture has been a continuously celebrated product, and VITRA’s latest color option has given new life to the chair once more.
