This spring Montana relaunched a Panton design classic – the Pantonova seating system from 1971. Today, Pantonova retains its iconic status, bringing an infinite range of uses in modern offices and private contexts.

Designed by Verner Panton.

A landscape of seating

In 1971, Verner Panton designed the modular wire Pantonova seating system for the now-legendary Danish restaurant, Varna: the epitome of the 70s vibe, with its lavish, experimental shapes and vibrant colours. The Pantonova sofa gained further notoriety as the seat of choice of evil shipping tycoon Karl Stromberg in the 1977 James Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me.

Verner Panton was an avid creator and innovator of modular, iconic furniture that merged with its spatial context, transcending the category of furniture. As such, Pantonova and Montana are a perfect fit.

A modular seating system

The Pantonova seating system consists of three distinct seating modules: Linear, Concave and Convex. All chair modules are processed and chromed or powder-lacquered in the colour Black Red. The cushions are available in leather in Brandy and Black, in velvet in Aubergine, Camel and Sky as well as in textured fabric in Black, Sand and Shell from Kvadrat.

The modules can be used alone as sculptural, iconic chairs – or freely combined and arranged into various organically shaped seating formations, such as a circle, a half-circle, a wave, or an S-shape. Hence, the Pantonova design maintains iconic status, offering endless applications in contemporary contexts, from lobbies, receptions, lounge areas and retail spaces – to the private living rooms of design aficionados.

The Pantonova modular wire seating system is a natural extension of the Panton Wire shelves, also manufactured by Montana – both designed in 1971. 

Panton Wire is available in two depths and in chrome, dark chrome or lacquered in the colours Snow, Black and Moulin Rouge. Over the years, several accessories have been added such as glass shelves and top plates in lacquered MDF, smoked glass and marble.

Panton One in new colours

The very first chair design of Verner Panton designed in 1955, Panton One is recently released in a new look – hand-weaved with paper string in the colours Black and Nature – and in new colours.

The paper string gives the Panton One chair series a new expression. The FSC® certified paper string is a natural material made from paper originating from sustainable forests. The string is strong and comfortable to sit on and coated with a thin layer of wax, which makes the string resistant and easy to keep.

A shared world of ideas and colours

When Peter J. Lassen, the founder of Montana, first met the young Danish architect Verner Panton in 1956, neither of them was aware that this would be the beginning of a close friendship and life-long collaboration.

Between them arose a constant dialogue about design in which their shared world of ideas was surrounded by great mutual respect. The result was a large number of interesting and innovative pieces of furniture designed by Verner Panton. Some of these are manufactured by Montana today and can be found below.
