Designer: Eero Aarnio This is the Eero Aarnio original hanging Bubble Chair imported from Finland. In 1968, Eero Aarnio turned the Modern Design World upside down with his revolutionary hanging bubble chair design - a modern chair that is still turning heads today. Have fun and make a Statement! Description: Eero Aarnio designed the Bubble chair in 1968. This modern hanging acrylic sphere features removable cushions and hangs from the ceiling at almost any height. A 6' chain and snap hooks are provided with your order - longer is possible. The hanging bubble chair is made of clear acrylic and chromed or stainless steel. The cushions are stocked in silver or white leather or they can be ordered in other colored fabrics or COM.
The modern hanging Bubble Chair also impresses the user by the special accoustic. The Bubble swallows the sound and you feel isolated inside in a pleasant way, even when the bubble chair is placed in a crowded place.
Eero Aarnio was - and still is - one of the modern furniture pioneers in using plastics in industrial design. Plastic material set the designers free to create every shape and use every color they wanted. This gave birth to objects oscillating between function and fun - and always fascinating ones. Eero Aarnio had said "after I had made the Ball Chair I wanted to have the light inside it and so I had the idea of a transparent ball where light comes from all directions," thus the hanging bubble chair.
