Set of 4 Panton Chairs and Glass Top Table

The Panton Chair is a classic in the history of modern furniture design.  From the early 1950's, Danish designer Verner Panton had desired to create a stackable, cantilevered chair out of a single piece of moulded plastic.  In 1960, the chair was developed to the point where it could go into production.  It was the first chair to be manufactured completely out of a single piece of plastic.  Since its introduction to the market, it has undergone a number of design modifications and been produced by various manufacturers including Herman Miller.  While this set has been attributed to Herman Miller,
it doesn't have a Herman Miller stamp or label, so we can't confirm the manufacturer.
The chairs are very comfortable due to the cantilever structure and the flexibility of the polystyrene.  The table has a glass top and hollow tubular legs.  It would make a great breakfast or kitchen set.
The Panton Chair has received many international design awards over the years and resides in the collections of many prominent museums including the MoMA.
Chairs, 32" h., 20" w., 20" d.  Table, 41" diam., 27" h.  American, c. 1970's  $1,275.00 for the set  SALE $795.00 for the set
Condition:  3 Chairs and table are in good - very good vintage condition with some typical age appropriate marking and color variance in the polystyrene.  1 chair has a small piece missing from the side of the seat, but it does not affect the structure and still shows well.  The chair could be restored.
