About this designer: Verner Panton
Verner Panton
Known as the experimental and uncompromising bad boy of post-war Danish design, Verner Panton pushed the design envelope as far as he could. He used steel wire frames and moulded plastic like no designer before him. Born in 1926 and raised on the small Danish island of Funen, Panton attended Odense Technical College and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. As a young man he worked in the design offices of his famed countryman, Arne Jacobsen. Panton is probably most well known for the moulded plastic stacking chair (with a profile strongly related to Rietveld’s 1932 wooden 'Zig-Zag' chair) which bears his name. Aram Store stocks many of Panton’s designs for Vitra including his Panton, Cone and Heart Cone chairs.

Description

Amoebe was created by Verner Panton in 1970 for the famous Visiona installation, which included several versions of this lounge piece. It is a marvellous example of close-to-the-floor lounge furniture and embodies the spirit of the early 1970s. Amoebe Highback has a flexible backrest that curves over the head of the sitter, forming a sculptural canopy. In this way, Amoebe Highback creates a sense of shelter and seclusion — especially in large, open spaces..
