One of my clients brought this Verner Panton chair to my attention yesterday.  Dubbed the System 1-2-3 Dining Chair, it’s currently for sale at Design within Reach and was just recently brought back into production-

What’s the verdict? Love it or leave it?

Personally, I’m not loving it.  I much prefer the good ole basic Panton chair without the leather and fancy swivel mechanism.  I don’t doubt that the 1-2-3 chair is more comfortable, but I’m an original Panton chair girl at heart..sigh.

I’m still jammin’ on the basic panton chair. The teeny tiny point between the base and the rest of the chair bugs me.

Our panton chairs, in action…

Hate both styles, but especially the Verner one – The only place I can see it looking “good” is on a Sci-fi movie set or some “future” themed set.

I I do not like these chairs. I do not think you can sit comfortably on these.
