Vitra 1950s C1 armchair and stool by Verner Panton

C1

It's a design that screams the 1960s, but the Vitra C1 armchair and stool actually dates back to 1959.

Designed by Verner Panton, the C1 is a swivel chair on a brushed stainless steel base, with slight tilt and generous polyurethane foam upholstery for comfort. Even more comfortable if you stretch out and dump your feet on the matching stool.

Often copied but as ever, the original is always the best, even if that means paying a premium. In this case it's £1,043 for just about any colour you desire.
