Cloverleaf in- & outdoor – an icon recreated with sustainability in mind
Verpan’s Cloverleaf in- & outdoor delivers high on aesthetics, comfort and sustainability.
Cloverleaf in- & outdoor is Verpan’s modern take on Panton’s iconic Cloverleaf sofa. It is also a perfect example of how a 50-year old original idea can be re-imagined to answer new demands while staying true to its heritage.
Designed by Verner Panton in 1969, the Cloverleaf design stands out as one of his most unique works – sculptural, organic aesthetics and functional qualities combined in a modular sofa offering almost infinite opportunities for personal expression. Qualities that are highly cherished in the standard Cloverleaf, and qualities that could not be waived in the development of the new version.
“We designed the Cloverleaf in- & outdoor as we experienced a growing demand to implement its unique features in other environments than what is possible with the standard version – especially outside areas but also indoor areas with high-traffic and in various professional environments with special requirements to cleaning and hygiene. All of which is answered with the Cloverleaf in- & outdoor version.” – Peter Frandsen, CEO Verpan.
Timelessness in design and material
For the Cloverleaf in- & outdoor, Verpan opted for a hardwearing polyethylene (PE) as the material for the new version. In addition to meeting all requirements to durability, maintenance, health and safety, PE is 100% recyclable.
The production of the Cloverleaf in- & outdoor takes place in Denmark using a rotation moulding process in which each unit is cast to meet the high-quality standards set by Verpan to ensure compliance to Panton’s original design.
“With the Cloverleaf in- & outdoor we offer our customers the opportunity to create their own unique sustainable space with zero compromise to design and quality. That makes me proud.” Peter Frandsen, CEO Verpan
A one-of-a-kind piece of furniture
Cloverleaf was conceived as a sprig of clover, meandering and unfolding as it gets longer. In the middle, the seat is divided by a backrest, which wriggles out of the seat. As well as providing the necessary back support, it also shields you from people sitting on the other side. This one-of-a-kind sofa is one of Panton’s masterpieces, which now can be put to outdoor use.
The Cloverleaf design includes a left, a right and two middle sections, which means it can be combined in a myriad of options.
