Set of 4 Stackable S Chairs by Verner Panton for Herman Miller, 1973

About

The Danish designer Verner Panton broke with the Scandinavian tradition of producing handcrafted teak wood furniture. As early as 1949-50, Panton began drafting chairs with no rear legs during his studies. At the end of the fifties he developed the prototype for the “Panton-Chair” in plastic but he didn’t found a suitable manufacturer with whom he could realize his idea. In 1962 he visited Vitra, who manufactured Herman Miller products under license. Finally in 1967 the first fiberglass-reinforced polyester prototype was made. The final version went into serial production in 1968 at Vitra under the label of the Herman Miller Furniture Co. It quickly won fame and became a Pop Art icon. In 1970 Vitra replaced the costly production technology, which required thirty minutes to produce one piece, with Thermoplast injection molding. Using a dyed granulate Luran-S made by BASF, the edge profiles had to be strengthened and reinforcing ribs placed underneath the seat. In 1979 Vitra stopped the production of the S-shaped chair. Since 1990 Vitra has been producing the “Panton-Chair” in different materials. These 4 white chairs are dated 1973 and marked Herman Miller. They are still in perfect vintage condition.
