Oh the Panton Chair. We all love it. We will always love it. It is the epitome of modern. I fell in love with this white lace version from Ben Adams Architects that was submitted as a competition piece. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the chair, Vitra UK held a competition to customize a chair. This one got second place.
I could see this working in so many spaces. The refined nature of the lace pattern makes it traditional enough to give a "home-y" vibe to a modern space.
