Amoebe Highback Chair

I honestly admire those people who lived a long time ago, but still influence a great deal of other people with their thinking and work. And I am talking about people who worked in all the fields, either literature, medicine and even design. For example people like George Nelson or Verner Panton are still very well known by those in that particular field of work. Verner Panton was a very famous designer back in the 1970s, but it is amazing that his works are still manufactured nowadays and they look and sell very well. This Amoebe Highback Chair is the proof.

This is supposed to be a lounge chair and it looks very modern and has a futuristic design. It is a piece of the so-called close-to-the-floor lounge furniture  that was very popular back in the 1970s. The chair has a high backrest that is arched and ends in a long canopy over the sitter’s head. Then the seat and the part that rests on the floor show another gracious curve, which gives the chair an elegant posture. It gives you the feeling of shelter and protection, especially if you place it in an open space or a large living room. It is comfortable and firm, available in a number of colours and manufactured by Vitra and sold for the price of $2,375.
