Panton Amoebe Chair
Not as famous as his eponymous chair, the Amoebe Chair is another classic piece of furniture design from Verner Panton.
The Amoebe was created for the Visiona Expo, an exhibition for Bayer on board a boat, where Panton created landscapes of block colours. This chair can be used on its own or multiples can be lined up to form a sofa, giving flexible seating options.
Vitra has re-issued the Amoebe in a range of bright colours, as befits a design from the man who give his name to a colour system (Pantone). Several online shops are selling them, including Blend Design Store where they are £700 each.
