The Heart Cone Chair takes its name from the expressive, heart-shaped silhouette of its seat shell. Designed by Verner Panton in the late 1950s, the chair combines a comfortably upholstered seat with an understated, elegant base made of satin stainless steel.
The design career of Verner Panton reached its first peak toward the end of the 1950s. With a furniture series based on simple geometric shapes, Panton anticipated elements of Pop Art, while also emulating the elegance of Scandinavian Modernism in the execution of the bases. The most famous designs from this series are the Cone Chair and the Heart Cone Chair. The extended wings of the backrest are reminiscent of Mickey Mouse ears, but can also be interpreted as a contemporary development of the classic wingback chair.
