Overview

Design by Verner Panton, 1970.

Created in 1970 for the famous Visiona installation, the Amoebe Highback Chair embodies the zestful, cheeky spirit of the early 1970s. Like other furniture from the disco era, the Amoebe is close to the floor and features a flexible backrest that curves over the head of the sitter to form a sculptural canopy. Available in a range of bright colors, the Amoebe Highback Chair creates a sense of shelter and seclusion especially when used in large, open spaces.

Amoebe is also available in a standard back version in a wide-range of colors.

Notes:

Standard Delivery is Curbside. White Glove service is available at a premium and must be requested at the time of order placement. Please contact our Sales Department for rates.

Verner Panton

Designer: Verner Panton

Verner Panton was an inspirational and colorful personality. A unique person with a special sense of colours, shapes, light function and room.

Over the course of his career Verner Panton (1926-1998) introduced a series of modern lamps with personalities unlike any of his Scandinavian contemporaries.

With a remarkable faith in the unlimited possibilities of the form, he worked successfully to create a new set of theories about how lighting should work and how it should influence its surroundings.

Verner Panton in his own words:
"The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of usning colors. By experimenting with lighting, colors, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their fantasy imagination and make their surroundings more exciting".

Vitra

Manufacturer: Vitra

Classic. Modern. Sustainable.

Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).

Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.
