To call Verner Panton’s Welle series “lounge furniture” is almost an understatement. Like so much else of Panton’s extensive oeuvre, these wildly imaginative organic forms land like a colourful bomb in the sleepy world of traditional contract furniture – and leave us anything but indifferent.

Panton first displayed the Welle series at the forward-thinking Visiona exhibition back in 1969 alongside the Fun lamp and Cloverleaf sofa, other visionary Panton works that have long since entered the cannon of contemporary design.

Why Welle never went into series production remains something of a mystery. Maybe the cold foam technology of the day wasn’t ready for such massive forms. Perhaps Welle got lost in the visual orgy that was Visiona, next to so many other soon-to-be Panton classics. It could also be that the design itself was simply ahead of its time. At any rate, VERPAN jumped at the chance when the Panton estate agreed that the time for Welle is finally here in 2014.

WELLE truly are some of the most organic forms Panton ever created for the lounge.
