The living room features a pair of 1-2-3 lounge chairs from 1973 and his Studio-line sitting group from 1961. His wire shelf is used as a table and his potent Geometry carpet from the 60s unifies the center of the room. His most classic design, the Panton Chair, is used as a desk chair. First produced in 1966, it was the world’s first floating chair molded in polyurethane without any seams or joints.
