Pantonova for Outdoor (Contact us for pre-order)
As a sculptural iconic chair, the sumptuous Pantonova has been making its own strong design statement with linear, concave and convex versions. Thanks to the stainless steel wire construction, it is highly versatile to all kinds of surroundings. Especially being used in the 10th movie of James Bond 007 series as the selected seat of evil shipping tycoon. Please refer to P.S. I About Montana & Verpan for the reason of Pantonova being manufactured by Montana but not Verpan.
不鏽鋼金屬製的Pantonova單獨使用所綻放的闊氣大方及結合其他凹凸版本組成的實驗性的外型，除了保持其強烈的設計型態，展現的魅力則然不同。曾於占士·邦1977年007電影系列中的第十部作為反派的專屬沙發。至於為什麼Verner Panton的作品會在Montana而非Verpan出售，請參見P.S. I About Montana & Verpan.

P.S. I About Montana & Verpan
Without sharing design ideas with absolute mutual respect since the first meeting in 1956, Peter J. Lassen - the founder of Montana & the young Danish architect Verner Panton could never imagine their close friendship would become a life-long collaboration. Apart from Verpan, some of the masterpieces (including Pantonova Modular System) designed by Verner Panton are still being manufactured by Montana nowadays.
若然沒有在1956年初次見面，以互相尊重為基礎，分享各自的設計世界，Montana的始創人Peter J. Lassen跟年輕的丹麥建築師Verner Panton也不敢想像他們因此而親近的友誼會帶來一輩子的合作，至今芳留百世。因此Panton設計的某些大師作品（包括前文提到的Pantonova）現在依然在Montana生產出售。
P.S. II About Verner Panton
Verner Panton was invited to design the interior sections of a 70s vibe legendary Danish restaurant - Varna in Aarhus in 1971, by using his special shades and forms as the core. Apart from having Pantonova as the major dining seating, Panton Chair/ Panton One and extraordinary Fun lighting series were being used as well. Some of them like the Moon pendant lighting series are still keeping in good condition and still being widely loved by the Nordics these days.
Verner Panton曾在1971年為一間位於丹麥的奧胡斯的傳奇餐廳Varna以他獨特的色彩及形狀觀念型態作室內設計的主調，除了以Pantonova作為主要餐椅外，還有經典的Panton Chair/ Panton One及華麗的Fun燈飾系列，部分燈飾如Moon系列現依然在餐廳使用中，大受當地人熱愛。可見Verner Panton經典設計由中世紀至今仍有非同小可的影響力。
