Verner Panton's cantilevered stacking chair (1960) was the first single-material and single-form chair to be made and has been produced by Vitra through three decades of development in plastics technology. This version consists of a single piece of strong, flexible polypropylene with integral color that will not fade over time. As striking as modern sculpture, this classic piece is comfortable, durable and easy to clean.

Verner Panton's S-chair is a gorgeous way to free your home from the slum of legs that is usually seen around a table. My favorite usage of this chair is in very traditional interiors such as this. The juxtaposition brings out the best in both elements.
The restrained color palette allows the shapes and textures to stand out.
Verner's famous chair melds into the crisp white surroundings. The space has a artistic sculptural quality.
When Saarinen created the Tulip chair's sexy, organic lines, the Post War design community was buzzing with this new industrial technique of utilizing molded plastic. It's futuristic aesthetic picked up many design awards. In 1955 it must have seemed other-worldly, but over 50 years later it remains one of the world's most coveted chairs.
Paired with the Saarinen table, the matching set feels at home with traditional surroundings and vintage furniture.
A Saarinen table, along with a set of tulip chairs, rests on top of a rustic wood floor. Modern lighting blends harmoniously with the contemporary furnishings.
A perfect choice for this mid-century modern kitchen!
