Designer: Eero Aarnio '62 The Original Eero Aarnio Ball Chair, imported from Finland, is the classic that broke all the rules and transcended 60's modern furniture design. Have fun & make a statement!
Description: Eero Aarnio is one of the first 60's modern furniture pioneers in using plastic and fiberglass in industrial and furniture design. These materials set designers free to create any shape and any color they wanted. One year after he had designed the Pastil Chair in 1968, Eero Aarnio received the American Industrial Design Award and countless other awards. The New York Times wrote about the Eero Aarnio Ball Chair and Pastil Chair at this time: "the most comfortable forms to hold up the human body."
The Aarnio Ball Chair also impresses the user by the special accoustic. The Ball chair swallows the sounds and makes you feel isolated inside in a very pleasant way, even when set in a crowded place. It was indeed the masterpiece of 60's modern furniture.
This is the original Eero Aarnio Ball chair in current production and not an immitation. It is imported from Finland from Aarnio's studio. The knock-off (re-interpretation) version has inferior quality and the design and base are altered.
Materials: The Ball Chair has a fiberglass glossy shell, steel lacquered base, high-density quality foam cushions that are removable. The interior fabric of the Ball chair is a quality wool blend.
