Next offers high street copy of Panton chair

Curve chairs

You'd be forgiven for thinking this room set photograph included the Panton chair. In fact, it's an image from Next's new Autumn/Winter collection, featuring their Panton lookalike, the curve chair.

It's got the same curves and plastic appeal as that iconic piece of 60s design. However, while the Panton chair is available from Vitra in a variety of colours, Next's version is only available in white. 

The main noticeable difference between the two is the price. While you can get an official Panton chair for about £150, a pair of the curve chairs costs £125.

Modern Design Deck print by Jen Renninger


Want a quick visual primer on key design icons? Well then you may be interested in this print of Jen Renninger's Modern Design Deck. The deck allocated a celebrated designer and a depiction of one of their famous works to each letter of the alphabet. This print shows 30 of her original illustrations for the deck (yes, some of the letters have more than one designer attached to them) going from A for Aalto to Z for Zeisel. 

This print costs $49. A selection of the designs made for individual letters, including P for Panton and E for Eames, are also available at $25 each.
