A Bond Villain’s Chair from ’70s Comes Back Into Production

Bond foe Karl Stromberg and his weird webbed hands made this chair famous in the ’70s.


In 1971 Danish designer and mid-century master Verner Panton designed a wireframed modular seating system for a restaurant in Aarhus, Denmark. Six years later, Panton’s curvy seats appeared in Karl Stromberg’s lair in the Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. Unveiled at Milan Design Week’s Salone de Mobile (the furniture equivalent of New York Fashion Week), the Pantonova seating system is coming back.

The iconic seating system is being reissued by Danish design company Montana, and will be available in natural chrome or lacquered coating, with leather, velvet or Kvadrat fabric cushions, Dezeen reports. The Pantonova system is acoompanied by more Panton pieces, including chairs, storage and side tables. You can check them all out on Montana’s site.
