Heart Cone Chair from vitra, Design and idea 1959 by Verner Panton.

Year: 1959

Heart Cone ChairVerner Panton named his piece of furniture, based on the Cone Chair, designed in the year before. The backrest reminds of a wing pair. Together with the cone, the base of the chair, the silhouette copies the form of a heart. Panton, who opposed old-fashioned enterieur, created with the Heart Cone Chair a counterpole to the classical wing chair, which was very popular in the end of the 50s. Chairs with only one possible seat position were totally antipathetic to the designer. The Heart Cone Chair K3 is the third representative from the Series K, the family of the Cone Chairs.
