THE BALL CHAIR
The Ball Chair is one of the cult objects appearing in popular culture, including the series The Prisoner, the films Mars Attacks and Austin Powers…
He is famous for creating the Ball Chair (1963-1965). Although the movement of Pop-Design, he refuses the concept of temporary furniture.
Eero Aarnio studied at the School of Art and Design Helsinki (1954-1957).
He opens his design agency 1962, and devoted himself since then mainly in interior and industrial design. Continuing the tradition originally established by Finnish designers of the first half of the twentieth century, Aarnio at first creates natural materials including furniture craftsmen made the stool wicker Jattujakkare.
But convinced that "the design means constant renewal, reassessment and growth ", He is interested in fiberglass, he quickly senses the potential. His most famous furniture from this period are the Ball or Globe chair (1962), the seat latch Pastille (1967) which earned him the award from AID (American Industrial Design) in 1968, and the hanging chair Bubble plexiglass (1968).
These iconoclastic creations, kinds of objects of a space age fantasy, capture the spirit of the years 19602. However, Aarnio does not adopt the principles of the ephemeral and expensive disposable pop culture. In 1973, it proposes a playful seat in the toy-like (albeit at adult sizes), Pony, sold in the US by Stendig as the Mustang. The object, a little strange indeed, is made of polyurethane foam covered with fabric. But as said Aarnio, "A chair is a chair… but a seat does not have to be a chair. This can be anything as long as it is ergonomically correct ".
The Pony can also be arranged through that "overlapped" to imaginary lands at the whim of each. In the years 1980, Aarnio will develop a plywood chair prototype and in the years 1990, for Adelta, and sculptural metal door fittings (1996) for Valli & Valli.
He looked forward with optimism when "the personal approach and automated manufacturing will walk hand in hand so that it manages to completely control the industrial production to the point of being able to forget". Best known for his furniture and interiors, Aarnio is also a graphic designer and photographer.
