Importance of Eero Aarnio armchairs and chairs
Eero Aarnio was among the first Finnish designers to work with materials such as acrylic and fiberglass. His designs influenced the 60's and were popular accessories in science fiction movies. With its striking shape and colorfulness, the Ball Chair is a statement of its time and a symbol of the eccentric pop culture of the 60s: mass production, enthusiasm for technology and a stylish shape reminiscent of space capsules. With his idea of mobile living concepts, Aarnio was ten years ahead of his time.
