A clean and wet towel should be used to wipe the surface of any product that is exposed to ordinary or corrosive liquid within 10 minutes. A piece of dry cloth should then be applied to absorb the residual moisture. Please try not to apply a detergent with a high concentration of alcohol or a bleaching effect to clean household products. If you have no alternative, you must wipe the detergent off immediately after cleaning to remove corrosive liquid residue.

How can you tell if a Panton Chair is real?
To identify an original Panton Chair take a look underneath the chair. There will be a metal plate with an engraving of Verner Panton's signature and a unique serial number. Verpan is a member of Be Original Americas. They support the organisation's mission to combat counterfeit design. The aim is to inspire a movement in support of authentic, creative work.
What is the difference between the deluxe and standard System 1-2-3 Chairs by Verner Panton?
The System collection of Panton Chairs all features his signature S-shaped design. The standard System 123 Deluxe has additional foam and deep buttoning across the inside back and seat of the chair. This luxurious detail is a rarity in modern designer chairs. For a more traditional modern look opt for the standard System 123 chair.
Are the System 123 Paton Chairs more comfortable than the original Panton Chair?
As one of the first chairs to ever be created in a single piece of plastic it is a little dated in terms of comfort. Whereas, the System 1-2-3 chairs all feature the same wonderful curves but with a more modern design. The combination of a solid steel frame and VOSS foam makes it more durable and comfortable.
How difficult is it to look after the Verner Panton System 1-2-3 Chair?
The System 1-2-3 is easy to care for. To clean the aluminium footplate wipe off with a damp cloth. Use soapy water to remove stains. You should vacuum the upholstery once a week with a soft brush regularly to keep dust and dirt free. Remove non-greasy stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in clean warm water. Afterwards, if necessary, clean by dabbing with soapy water or water with a little washing-up liquid added. See formulae. Finally, dab the surface with clean, tepid water.
Does the round base allow the Verpan System 123 to swivel/spin 360 degrees?
Yes, not only can the base turn a full 360-degree in motion, but it also has a locking option. To lock the base in position simply turn the base upside down, remove the centre cap and bolt and swap the turnable rectangular plate for the turnable one.
