Born in 1926, Verner Panton is one of the younger Danish Designers active during the mid-century period. Famous for his furniture and interior design, Panton created innovative and futuristic designs, often experimenting with new materials such as plastics. This allowed him to create fluid forms in bright colors that were hugely popular in the 1960s, and have remained to be so to this day. Working at the architectural practice of Arne Jacobsen for the first two years of his career, Panton very quickly set up his own design and architectural office, where he created innovative architectural proposals, such as a collapsible house in 1955. In 1960 Panton designed and manufactured the Stacking chair, or S chair, the first single form injection-moulded plastic chair. His most famous and mass-produced design, the S chair is still in production today, available from companies such as Vitra.
Thank you so much, i purchased this at an estate sale was really dirty. My question is twofold, one, some of the paint has chipped not much but a few spots can it be fixed. Second, though i don't want to sell it, curious as to approx. value
Molly's link of Petra shows the "Panton chair" listed at 225. GBP ($294 USD); although new, it's very collectible and has won many national awards.
If you peruse the link I sent above, you will see the prices are all over the place, depending on the site, age, condition, etc. But, around $300 seems to be the average.
