Cone Chair, 1959
Danish designer and architect Werner Panton created some of his greatest designs from experimenting with form, materials, and rich color, the latter being one of Panton’s trademarks. Color was often a focal point in his furnishings, as seen in this vibrant red, futuristic looking cone chair. In his later work, Panton created rooms as total environments, focusing on textiles as coordinating elements and a means of expressing color in a unified interior.
