Paton Plastic Chair

Paton Plastic Chair

Panton Plastic Chair
Year Invented: 1968

Designer: Verner Panton

Eero Saarinen’s famous tulip chair, designed in 1955, was one of the first plastic chairs to be produced. But in 1968, Verner Panton created the first single-form injection-molded chair—his stackable, cantilever Panton chair. The sleek lines and singluar form of this chair have made it an icon and secured it a place in design history.
