System 1-2-3 chair collection at Space Furniture

September 17, 2014

Verner Panton’s classic chair has been an enduring triumph of organic form and stylish comfort since its initial design in 1973.

Originally designed in 1973, the Verpan System 1-2-3 chair collection was comprised of 20 different models with variations in seat height, arm rests and feet.

The chair is now available in both a dining and lounge style and is made in a standard version from moulded foam rubber upholstered with either fabric or leather.

It took Verner Panton three years to develop the series, and the result was a unique chair concept where Panton worked systematically with design and function based on a defined theme. “I wanted to design furniture that grows up out of the floor,” explains Panton, “To turn the furniture into something organic and never with four legs.”

The chair originally featured a light frame construction made from steel upon which fabric could be mounted.

In the updated version, Verpan has used foam rubber for increased sitting comfort and to ensure a tight and even upholstering.
