Classic Chairs See Festive Anniversary Updates
A trio of classics takes longevity sitting down.
1. Designer: Verner Panton for Vitra
Standout: As the S-shape cantilevering polypropylene chair hits the big 5-0, two limited editions—the metallic Panton Chrome and the sapphire Panton Glow—enliven the festivities.
2. Designer: Gaetano Pesce for Cassina
Standout: Three decades after its debut, this plush simulation of a throne welcomes a new range of colors for its quilted wool-felt cover.
3. Designer: Archizoom Associati for Poltronova
Standout: Six veterans of the since-disbanded firm return to mark the wavy polyurethane sofa’s 50th anniversary with new leatherette covers, including the dotty Superonda Pois and the Unicode-inspired Superonda Babele Decoded.
