Pantone Flight Stool

I got one of these last month. It's one of a limited edition (of 50) Pantone Flight Stool in Cayenne (Pantone color 18-1651 TPX).


Signed by Lawrence Herbert, founder and innovator of the Pantone Matching System. Designed by Barber-Osgerby; produced by Isokon Plus. I like them.

In July 2005, 96 stools (2 each of 48 colors) were shown at the Blue Gallery of London exhibit "Colour By Numbers" [ 1 2 3 ]. Each stool was signed and numbered by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. An additional 60 stools were made for Pantone for exhibit at Barney's New York [ 1 2 ]. 2-3 of each of 20 colors were made available for sale from Barney's and from Pantone. Some of those were signed by Lawrence Herbert.
