Identical with Original

I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

Elsie on Jul 09, 2016

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design

Perfect

Really good quality

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Amazing

Great support!

Dorothy on May 09, 2016

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Same as original, just cheaper

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Verner Panton is described by many as the outsider in Danish furniture design, largely due to his completely different choice of materials and techniques. In fact, he gained both critical acclaim and public recognition once he moved abroad. While Panton designed at the same time as other famous Danish designers like Arne Jacobsen or Hans Wegner, he broke through almost a decade later, as it was in the 1960s and ‘70s that his furniture and lighting was produced and recognized in the general public. Many attribute this rise of popularity of Panton’s designs to the stylistic and cultural changes brought about by the Flower Power era.

 

Verner Panton's Use of Colour

One of the most recognizable characteristics of Panton’s designs is his use of vivid and distinct colours, and this is true for all of his designs, whether it’s his lamps, chairs, tables, mugs or newspaper racks. Some of the most famous examples are:

 

Industrial Design and Choice of Materials

Apart from colours, it was mainly the materials and production techniques that differentiate Verner Panton from other prominent designers of the Danish Modern movement. While most of them hailed the art of carpentry and chose classic materials like wood and leather for their designs, Panton embraced the new opportunities brought about by industrialization and mass production. Plastic and fiberglass played an important role in many of his designs and he also designed the world’s first chair produced in a single continuous piece, namely the Paton chair from 1960, made from fiberglass and lacquered in different colours, depending on the model. Despite the somewhat poor initial reaction, the chair went on to become the symbol of innovation in Danish furniture design.

International Success

Verner Panton

As an outsider in the Danish Modern movement, Verner Panton spent a large part of his career working abroad. He opened his own design studio in Copenhagen in 1955 but ended up moving to Switzerland in 1963. Some of his most famous endeavours took place abroad, like his task assignments in Hamburg for Der Spiegels House or in Trondheim for Hotel Astoria. Similarly, his Panton Chair was produced by Vitra, the American company behind the Eames chair. However, some of his lamps were designed for and produced by the Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen that was famous for working with Poul Henningsen.

Fluctuating Prices of Verner Panton's Designs

Although Panton’s initial success is related to his work abroad, today he is very popular in his native country. In recent years, his furniture and lighting designs have become highly sought-after by collectors, both in Denmark and internationally, passing all the assessments on auctions. While some of his furniture and lamp designs were manufactured in large numbers and are therefore common and relatively cheap, others were produced in limited numbers and the prices reflect this.

Awards

Panton has won several awards for his work, both in Denmark and abroad, including the PH Prize in 1967 and the American International Design Award in 1963 and 1968.

Living Tower – Experiment with Architecture and Furniture

Verner Panton’s perception of contemporary interior design has also influenced his work in the field of architecture, resulting in some of the most visually and aesthetically innovative designs. He was the first designer to experiment with the great potential of plastic as a basic material in his experimental projects such as the Collapsible House from 1955 or the Cardboard House in 1960. This innovative approach to this new material, as well as his experimentation with geometric shapes and bright colours marked a departure from more conventional and traditional Scandinavian design and a move towards a style strongly influenced by contemporary popular culture and design trends inspired by it.

The Living Tower from 1969 is another exciting experiment by Panton in which he unites the experimental style of furniture design and architecture to build the tower which consists of furniture in several floors. Panton had previously worked for Arne Jacobsen who influenced his perception of architectural functionalism, but Panton brought this approach a step further, adding the artistic touch and bright colours to produce innovative and experimental designs, which seem strangely in line with the stylistic shifts of the Hippie era.
