An exclusive re-edition of the iconic 1960s Inflatable Stool designed by renowned Danish designer and pioneer, Verner Panton has been produced by Verpan exclusively for Prada on the occasion of the Spring/Summer 2019 Prada Women's fashion show, held in Milan on September 20, 2018. The stool wears a unique VERPAN for PRADA inscription.

 

With the Inflatable Stool, Panton created an unpretentious piece that despite its unassuming presence offers an extraordinary visual quality to the seating experience, which can best be described as ‘floating on air’.

 

Inflatable Stool – About

Introduced in the early 1960s, the Inflatable Stool by Verner Panton was one of the first ever pieces of furniture made from inflatable material. The Inflatable Stool is a great example of Panton’s curiosity and bold approach to new materials. It also displays his unique flair for thinking in systems, as the cubes were designed to be used either individually or in multiples to create a lounge or daybed.

The Inflatable Stool is made from transparent film that is welded together and inflated to form a cubic shape. The light and transparent material appealed to Panton, as it allowed for great mobility, flexibility and creativity in the design and usage of the products, and made it easy to move the pieces and adapt them to suit different circumstances and spaces.

At the time, Panton unfortunately was not able to perfect the method of welding, and the Inflatable Stool was never put into series production.

About Verner Panton

Among the giants of Danish design, Verner Panton established a unique reputation for his exuberant originality and tireless experimentation. Panton created lamps, furniture and textiles – and was also a sought-after interior designer. Although he was at the forefront of mid-century Danish Modern, Panton’s contribution was anything but mainstream. He enthusiastically embraced new materials, he splashed with a bold colour palette, and he playfully imbued many of his sculptural creations with a strong graphical expression – without ever compromising on quality or workmanship.

 

Panton’s iconic designs have emerged as contemporary design classics – as strikingly inventive now as they were 50 years ago.
