Known for being one of Denmark's most influential creative and innovative furniture designers, Verner Panton's acclaimed furniture designs such as Panton Chair Classic, BarBoy, and Geometri have been re-issued by Vitra and are still in production. In 1960, Panton was credited with creating the very first single-form injection-moulded plastic chair with the Panton stacking chair. Thirty years later this influential and successful chair would be re-issued by Vitra to much acclaim.

A variant of the cone chair, the Heart Cone Chair was designed one year later and given this name because of its heart-shaped outline. The Heart Cone Chair has large, projecting wings that could be interpreted as a contemporary take on the classic wing chair. It combines the elegance of the Fifties with the quirky style of the Sixties. In spite of its extravagant appearance the Heart Cone Chair is practical and surprisingly comfortable, ideal for everyday use in lobbies, restaurants and bars, as well as in the home.
