2010 Designer Furniture World Cup: Denmark 0 – Switzerland 1
One of the high points of Verner Panton‘s career came in Switzerland when in Vitra he finally found a producer for his Panton Chair. Today however there was no room for sentiment and Panton came out fighting.
Picking up where he left off against Joe Colombo Verner Panton attempted a quick plastic combination, his Barboy however going just wide. Fritz Haller remained as composed and sturdy as ever, the flexibility of his classic USM Haller system allowing him to respond to whatever move Verner Panton designed.
Late in the second half, with this Swiss Danish designer furniture contest apparently heading for a draw, Verner Panton resorted to a completely unnecessary Phantom and was rightly shown the red card.
Fritz Haller introduced a quick CD inlay tray and the match was decided.
