The Lobby Chair's structural principle makes it similar in terms of comfort to the Lounge Chair. It consists of three individual upholstered sections connected by means of aluminium side sections. The Lobby Chairs were originally designed for the lobby at the Rockefeller Center in New York, in subsequent years various versions were produced, but they all have one thing in common: outstanding comfort.
Verner Panton first came to international fame with his Cone Chairs. These extra-vagant designs seemed to defy the laws of stability, and are considered the first examples of Pantons work where he was typically experimental and witty traits that were to become hallmarks of his work. In the case of Wire Cone Chair, the body of the chair is made of intertwined, spot-welded steel wire. The wire grid, left exposed causing its visual appearance to change with the light or angle, ensures that the armchair appears transparent, elegant and light. At the same time, the conical form is astonishingly precise. The two upholstery elements create a colour contrast in the midst of the silver-grey wire structure and continue Pantons playful approach to basic geometric forms.
