On it’s 50th anniversary, Verner Panton’s eponymous plastic chair still feels ahead of the curve. It was in postwar Europe that experimental Danish designer became fascinated with idea of a chair made in one piece of progressive polymer. The challenge? Finding someone who could produce it. “Fifteen to 20 manufacturers have tried it but have all rejected the project for different reasons,” Panton told Rolf Fehlbaum, of Swiss manufacturer @vitra, in 1963. They agreed to take on the task. Four years and ten prototypes later, a limited run of what became known as the Panton chair—a canti­levered seat in laminated, fiberglass-reinforced polyester—was debuted at the Cologne Furniture Fair. Though the chair became an immediate icon, its composition was never static. Panton and Vitra tirelessly experimented with new materials in pursuit of utmost durability and simplicity of production, oscillating from polyurethane foam to polystyrene (it was thinner but required ribs under the seat for support), back to polyurethane foam, and finally to today’s most popular rendition—a flexible, durable, but more matte polypropylene, which hit the market in 1999, just a year after Panton’s death. Learn more about the history of the iconic Panton chair through the link in our profile.

Unveiled on April 26, Equal Justice Initiative (@eji_org)’s National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama now stands as a sobering reminder of racial inequality in America, from slavery to segregation to mass incarceration. The centerpiece is a group of 800 pillars that, from a distance, appear to be holding up a roof, Parthenon-style. Get closer and the columns are revealed to be suspended from above, rather than supported from below. Hanging, they represent the casualties of lynching, which occurred in some 800 counties from 1877 to 1950. (Each column bears the name of a county and its known victims.) The slabs are made of Corten steel, a material that will rust indefinitely. “Every piece has blemishes and streaks that will evolve in terms of color and complexion,” says Bryan Stevenson, founder of the EJI. In the park around the central memorial are 800 duplicate pillars, waiting to be adopted by their respective counties. Over time, absences will reveal which communities have helped spread the memorial’s moving message—and which have not. The building that contains the hanging columns was conceived in collaboration with Michael Murphy of @massdesigngroup, a Boston-based architecture firm best known for its public-interest projects in Africa and Haiti.
