About the DesignerEero Aarnio
Finland (1932 - )
Born in 1932, acclaimed Finnish designer Eero Aarnio changed the face of industrial design through his groundbreaking use of plastic. The Pastil Chair, reminiscent of a bright piece of candy, is an example of his highly innovative vision. The New York Times described the Pastil Chair and the iconic Ball Chair as "the most comfortable forms to hold up the human body." With its smooth fiberglass body and perfectly contoured seat, you can showcase this striking piece anywhere inside or outside your home for practical comfort as well as maximum visual impact.
The brilliance of the Ball Chair lies in its ability to provide a person with privacy without creating isolation. The materials used are able to diffuse outside noises, providing the user with a soothing feeling of calm when inside. However, the open side of the ball allows for engagement with the rest of the room if desired; the chair's swivel base gives the user control over which direction to face. Straddling the line between art and architecture, the Ball Chair is nothing short of a design masterpiece that effectively creates a room within a room: it is a luxurious miniature sanctuary with an unmistakable look. Comfort, style and practicality merge to create a working piece of art that comes in a variety of color combinations to suit any taste.Read more
