Modular furniture that seems to adapt to every situation in life has always been a topic in furniture design, to which Verner Panton also devoted himself. The Wire Shelf, based on Panton Wire chrome, was part of the Panton Pantonova furniture family. Formed from individual blocks of then 34.5 centimeters side length, it can still be used flexible and versatile in spite of adapted dimensions. Hi-Fi cabinet, table, bookshelf or room divider – the ideas are unlimited. 5 millimeter thick wire ropes arranged parallel to each other are bent into a cube, which is open to the front and the back.

Montana, the current manufacturer, offers these individual elements under the name Panton Wire. Clips can be used to connect the individual elements. Floors and racks made of glass, MDF or marble and fittings for wall mounting multiply the possible uses of the wire shelf. The same design style is available with Wire Table Lamp and Wire Floor Lamp for lighting.

Panton Wire black by Montana is a free-standing shelf, which dates back to a design draft by designer Verner Panton from 1971. The former name of the Panton Wire was called Wire Shelf and is derived from the construction of the shelf: string-like pulled-out metal wire forms a cube-like rack. Panton Wire dark black is available in the TAGWERC Design STORE in two different depths (18.8 and 34.8 centimeters). In addition to the black finish, the Panton Wire shelf is available in the TAGWERC Design STORE in chrome, dark chrome or in white, blue and red.
