A Panton Party

While on way home from France last month I leafed through the Air France magazine (which was really pretty impressive for an airline magazine!) and stumbled upon these fantastic images of Panton chairs used in conjunction with The Wapping Project. As far as I can tell (feel free to shed more light if you know more than I do), the team associated with The Wapping Project have essentially converted an old hydraulic power station in London into a restaurant and art installation space. I wish I could “hop the pond” as they say and see the place in person.

Nonetheless, how amazing would it be to have the space to house an incredibly long table with rows and rows of Panton chairs? Ahhh, eye candy.

And while the adults are eating, the kids could sit on more Panton chairs (near the old energy converters, of course) and watch cartoons.
