Montana re-launched Verner Panton’s Bachelor Chair in Milan

Montana re-launched the Bachelor chair designed by Verner Panton in 1955 at the DANISH CHROMATISM exhibition at the Triennale Design Museum during
the Milan fair.

Joakim Lassen, Director of Design and Communication was a friend of Verner Panton and family and says of the re-launch.

”The Bachelor chair was designed the same year as Verner Panton’s Tivoli Chair. There is a clear relationship in the design of the chair with its lightweight tubes, which recurs in the accompanying stool and coffee table. So it was important for me to make the Bachelor chair part of our product family.Bachelor_chair_Verner_Panton_Montana1

Verner Panton designed the chair when he was 27 years old, and it makes me think of Verner as a young man on the move, wishing to design a light, portable chair which was also comfortable. He managed to unite these qualities brilliantly in the Bachelor chair, which is as modern today as it was in 1955.”

Verner Panton’s simple, iconic chair consists of two bow-shaped tubes connected by three crossways tubes and a stretching seat. You can take the whole thing apart without any tools and pack it totally flat. It was one of the first chairs that could be disassembled, meaning it was easy to take anywhere and was easy to send by post. Like the Tivoli chair, the Bachelor chair can be used both indoors and outdoors.

The Bachelor chair and accompanying foot stool are being re-launched in six colours in acrylic and in linen canvas. The colours are: northern white, graphic coast, arctic blue, wild rose, mango and black coal, and nature – a light linen canvas. If more comfort is required, the chair may be provided with cushions.

The tables are being launched in three types of veneer for indoor use – white oak, burned oak and black oak – and two solid laminates for outdoor use: snow and anthracite.
