Panton Junior Chair


Designed by Verner Panton 
Manufactured by Vitra  

Thanks to its cheerful, bright colours and its pleasant, gentle curves the Panton Chair has always been a big hit with children – both as a seat and a toy. As such, very early on Verner Panton pursued the idea of producing a child’s version of the chair together with Vitra. The intention, which more than 35 years ago failed for economic reasons was now able to be turned into reality: The Panton Junior was produced using Panton’s original plans. Unchanged in terms of proportion and material it is around a quarter smaller than the regular model. Available in seven different colours, it is the ideal chair for children of kindergarten and primary school age.

With its bright, cheerful colours and smooth curves, the Panton Chair has always been a favourite of children – both as a chair and as a plaything. This led Verner Panton to consider the the idea of producing a child-size version of the chair together with Vitra over 35 years ago.

Proving impossible at the time for economic reasons, this aim was finally achieved in 2008 with the introduction of Panton Junior, a chair based on the designer's original plans. Identical to the regular model with regard to material and shape, the children's chair is approximately 25 percent smaller than the full-size Panton Chair. This makes Panton Junior, which is available in six different colours, an ideal chair for children in nursery and primary school.
