This extraordinarily impressive chair was designed by Danish designer Verner Panton in 1956, only to see the light of day ten years later.

The technology to put this chair into production was simply not sufficient at the time. Gerrit Rietveld had tried much earlier in 1932 to manufacture his Zig-Zag chair from one piece of material. German author and expert on Panton's oeuvre, Mathias Remele, notes that the idea may have originated after Panton's collaboration with August Sommer. A German company specialized in curved laminated wood that produced its Barboy in 1963. The Thonet brothers finally took up the challenge and produced two versions of this chair. Model 275 and 276 respectively with a round backrest.

This specific chair is a non-serial production and has a marvelous provenance. It was used for the pavilion for wooden constructions at the debau exhibition fair in Essen in the sixties. The chair consists of no less than fourteen layers of glued, bent, and pressed rounded veneer. The natural wood is truly sublime and has acquired a beautiful patina over the years.

As soon as the light falls on the attractive shapes, a true spectacle begins to take place that we could classify as clair-obscur. The shadow works, so to speak, towards the light from the bottom of the foot up to the hips of the seat. The backrest is straight and corresponds with the end of the foot. With this chair, you not only have an incredibly charming and challenging item in your home but also an art object that is included in various collections of museums around the world.

This bar is amazing. Beautiful and exactly as described. A custom crate (which was a work of art itself) was built in order to ship the piece to the U.S. The bar arrived in perfect condition without a scratch. I will say that take the crate apart was not easy and was a two-person job. But worth it in the end

I recently bought some amazing Artwork from AtKris Studio online. The whole experience was amazing. The transaction was amazingly efficient. The crating and shipping of the artwork to the United States from the Netherlands could not have gone smoother and the customer service was spot on!!  Krista was amazing and I highly recommend AtKris Studio!
