The Finnish designer Eero Aarnio was born in 1932. Eero Aarnio is one of the great innovators of modern furniture design. In the 1960s, Eero Aarnio began experimenting with plastics, vivid colours and organic forms. Breaking away from traditional design conventions. His now iconic plastic creations include the Ball Chair (1963). The Pastil (1968), and the Hanging Bubble (1968) chairs which echo the pop culture and spirit of their time. Many of Aarnio’s works are included in the world’s most prestigious museums, including Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.
Designer Furniture Ltd is proud to supply the retro inspired reproduction model chairs of the iconic Hanging Bubble Chair and Fibreglass shelled Egg Pod Chair and Big Ball Chair. The Hanging Bubble Chair is an awesome piece of design. Simple but very effective. The acrylic shell is clear and seamless letting lots of light into your bubble. The bubble chair has a simple chain that attaches to the top of the chair, it then needs attaching to a ceiling mount. Once you have decided on the cushion colour options you can just sit and relax. When it’s not in use it looks like a piece of stylish artwork hanging from the ceiling.
Eero Aarnio’s amazing Egg Pod has been delighting people all over the world since the sixties. Like The Beatles, Andy Warhol or The Prisoner, it’s the sort of sixties psychedelia that has endured and; that has kept its cool. It helps that the design is just so much fun. When you see it, you’re just going to want to sit in it and quite possibly claim it as your own. You can choose from a variety of fabric colours to complement your white egg shell.
If you’ve been doing the rounds, looking for furniture, you’ll have seen an awful lot of boring stuff! It’s almost as if the design revolution of the fifties and sixties never happened! But, fortunately, the trailblazing designs of Eero Aarnio are still going strong. Our faithful reproductions of the iconic (and totally groovy) ball chairs still pack that stop-you-in-your-tracks impact. Just as importantly, the softly padded interior and smooth-weave fabric make them a joy to sit, curl and hide in! We’ve got various colour combinations for you to choose from.
