"I wanted to design furniture that grows up out of the floor – to turn the furniture into something organic and never with four legs." -Verner Panton

Verpan introduces two chairs from the original 1-2-3 series designed by Verner Panton in 1973. The series originally comprised 20 different models with variations in seat height, arm rests and feet. The public was very enthusiastic about the chairs at the time, and one critic wrote: "It (the furniture series) will be a milestone in future furniture design... We have never before seen chairs designed and built like the 20 models that make up this series."

The original commission was to design a furniture program that combined a series of different functions with the basic requirement of good sitting comfort. The chairs should also have a simple and natural design, so they could fit into any environment as a functional element. It took Verner Panton three years to develop the series, and the result was a unique chair concept where Panton worked systematically with design and function based on a defined theme.
