Design Classic: Verner Panton's BarBoy

Janel Laban
May 29, 2008
Designed in 1963, the BarBoy is one of Verner Panton's best known designs. Like a racy cousin to the much loved Componibili units, the BarBoy brings a little swinging... ... sixties style to any room it rolls into.

Made of molded plywood with a high gloss finish and metal, it comes in white or black. The cylinder hides three storage areas and it is on casters.

For all this fabulousness, the price is high: the current re-issue by Vitra retails for $3000., but then again, no one ever said outfitting the bachelor pad was going to come cheap!

Available at Unica Home, Retromodern and many more retailers.
