Verner Panton’s name is often associated with the word ‘system’. In Panton’s design, we can find that there are many parts or different sizes – for example, with Panton’s multiple and different chair designs where ‘related parts move or work together’. Panton Wire in simplicity and versatility design was one of the furniture pieces in his wire collection of 1971, the system included chairs, tables, a coat rack, and more. The concept of this wire furniture was that the wire would catch the surrounding color.
