Amoebe Chair by Verner Panton

The Amoebe was originally dreamed up for Panton’s famous Visiona installation. It is a marvelous example of close-to-the-floor lounge furniture and embodies the spirit of the early 1970s. In bright colors, the re-edition delivers even greater comfort thanks to its flexible backrest shell. For the exhibition ’Visiona 2’ in 1970, Verner Panton designed a large group of furnishings, including the lounge chair Amoebe. The name playfully refers to the chair’s flowing organic shape. The early model’s rigid internal structure, made of tubular steel, has now been replaced by a laminated back shell. This increases the flexibility of the backrest and greatly enhances the chair’s comfort. Materials: laminated structure, foam upholstery. Design: Verner Panton, 1970 Manufacturer: Vitra
