Pantonova Dining Set
By the famous Danish designer Verner Panton (Danish, 1926–1998). Circa 1971 this Pantonova dining set, with its six wedge shaped chrome wire chairs, that compress into the table when not in use, is truly a work of functional art and sculpture. Initially I repurposed the set as a conference table for our business and only in the past few years did I return it to its original function as dining set.
The chairs are created from chrome plated steel and are 25 w x 20 d x 30 h inches. The table base, also made from chrome plated steel, has the original 47.5” diameter glass top which is ¾” thick. The glass top has no chips or scratches.
The base for the circular table's is also sculpted from curved chrome rods and stands 29”. While the set is not of the Art Deco era Verner’s Pantonova pieces certainly suggest some influence from that school of design and would fit perfectly within an Art Deco theme or as I have used it as a focal piece in an eclectic setting.
