Valentines Day Retro Designer

Design Verner Panton, 1959. Shell with upholstery and seat cushion, brushed stainless steel base. Made in Germany by Vitra. In 1958 he returned to Denmark full of unconventional ideas... one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. Defying gravity, the cone was both futuristic and shocking... so much so that when it was exhibited in a shop window in New York City police had to order its removal due to the traffic chaos its presence created. A comfortable club chair for everyday use, Vitra has faithfully re-issued this classic in close collaboration with the Panton estate. The Heart Cone Chair takes its name from its heart-shaped silhouette. 35" h | 40.5" w | 24.5" d $3,430.00 + free shipping in the continental U.S. (usually ships in 3-4 days).
