Eero Aarnio made the first prototype of the Pastil chair out of polystyrene, which helped him to verify the measurements, ergonomics and rocking ability. In 1968 he received the American Industrial Award for its comfortable form and unique aesthetic. This 'sweetie' was designed in 1967.
Eero has always been drawn to the circular form and is perhaps best known for his designs ‘without edges’. The Tomato chair combines three circles on a basic seat, with two as armrests, one stretched to be a comfortable back. It is made of fibreglass which makes it suitable for outdoor use as well. Tomato was designed in 1971 by Eero Aarnio.
The Bubble chair was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1968. According to Eero’s notes, the Bubble hangs from the ceiling because ‘there is no nice way to make a clear pedestal.’ It shares the same unique acoustics as the Ball Chair, a little cocoon that shields off the outside world.
The hanging Bubble chair is made from acrylic and solid stainless steel, and is available in four different leather options by Sørensen Leather.
