Spurred on by the success the Cone Chair design in 1958, Verner Panton designed the Heart Cone Chair for Vitra less than a year later.
Thought to have been partly inspired by the classic wing chair, this contemporary re-interpretation boasts a dramatic heart-shaped silhouette that draws influence from Pop Art and Scandinavian Modernism.
Resting upon a brushed stainless steel cruciform base, the striking design is upholstered in Vitra’s Tonus fabric. Flexible, incredibly soft and finished in a rich red hue, the classic woollen cloth lends a statement finish to the classic design.
Danish designer Verner Panton celebrated for his iconic Panton chairs, brought a new wave of design to the mid-20th century, experimenting with curvilinear shapes and psychedelic colour.
