Several of Danish furniture and interior designer Verner Panton’s creations have been used to decorate Bond villains’ hideouts—from decadent shell chandeliers to minimal lamps and beyond. Perhaps the most recognizable, the Pantonova seating system, is back in production. Bond antagonist Karl Stromberg perched atop the iconic, curve-framed seat in 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me and it was just unveiled once more at this year’s Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan. The reproductions will be available in natural chrome or lacquered, while “accompanying cushions are available in leather, velvet or Kvadrat fabric, in a choice of eight colors.” See more at Dezeen.
