Some pictures of the PANTON CHAIRS from the pre-series 1967-68.

Only 100 – 150 pieces were made due to the high cost of making them by hand.

These early ones are molded with a fiber glas structure and painted by hand.

The beige colour wich you see here never came into production. Herman Miller / Vitra were the manufacturer of these chairs.

Today the Panton Chair have becomed an design icon and probably they are amongst the most famous chairs ever.

Below you have a picture from 1967. Further down you can see some pictures from the process of making the chairs.
