In this SolidWorks eBook (68 pages) I will show you how to model the famous Panton Chair in SolidWorks. Although the design of this organic chair dates from the sixties, it’s still a modern design chair. The designer of this chair is Verner Panton. He was one of the most influential industrial designers of the sixties and seventies.

Verner Panton was born in Denmark and later relocated to Switzerland. He became famous for his original and modern furniture designs. The Panton Chair is for sure one of the most recognizable chairs in the world. The design of this chair was inspired by the Zigzag chair of Gerrit Rietveld.

One of the ambitions of Verner Panton was to create a plastic chair molded in one single piece. Panton searched a long time for a manufacturer of this modern chair. Finally he found the company Vitra to develop the chair for series production. The Panton chair received many different awards and is now recognized as a classic of modern furniture design.
