As the first all-plastic, single piece cantilever chair to be manufactured, the pioneering Panton Chair was first produced in 1967 took, after several years in development. Since it's release, the Panton Chair rapidly came to symbolise an entire era. In the early 1970s, Verner Panton explored the producing the Panton Chair with a mirrored surface. He felt that the chair’s dynamic curves were particularly suited to a reflective coating; however, the sensitivity of such a surface to scratching was an insurmountable technical obstacle at that time. Today, almost 50 years later, a reliable yet complex procedure is available, one that involves highly specialised hand craftsmanship.  The limited edition of Panton Chrome highlights the chair’s sculptural qualities in a spectacular way; it symbolises an old dream of the designer finally coming to fruition.

Materials & finishes
The dazzling mirrored effect of Panton Chrome is the result of a metallisation process, in which metal particles are embedded in multiple layers of varnish. This complex coating system is resilient enough to cope with the slight movement of the cantilever chair when in use while being sufficiently robust to protect the sensitive surface.
