Description

The Pony by Studio Eero Aarnio is a delightful classic of Finnish design from 1972. Featuring a moulded foam body with fabric upholstery, the Pony looks like an oversized toy, but its dimensions are well suited for adult's size.

The Pony shows the play of fantasy and imagination which is so characteristic for Eero Aarnio, and the seat has been designed with comfortability and ergonomics in mind. A perfect eye-catcher in the living room, hallway and, why not, in the office as well, Pony is the ideal for both people of any age.

Eero Aarnio

Eero Aarnio (b. 1932) is a Finnish designer and professor h.c. and is considered one of the great innovators of modern furniture design. During the years, Aarnio has experimented with a variety of different materials, including plastic, fibreglass and foam plastic. With these materials he has created some of the icons of Finnish design such as the Ball Chair (1962), Bubble Chair (1968) and Pastil Chair (1968), just to name a few. 

Famous for his furniture, Eero Aarnio is renowned also for his lamps – such as Double Bubble and Swan – and has proven his skills as a wood designer as well – for example with the Rocket bar stool and the Baby Rocket stool are excellent examples of his wooden designs. Eero Aarnio’s designs are characterized by a positive attitude and joyful nature, exemplified in works like the playful Puppy or the lovely Dino.

Aarnio’s creations are present in the collections of numerous museums worldwide – including the Victoria and Albert Hall Museum in London, the MoMA in New York, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris – and he has won many prestigious international design awards, such as the Red Dot Design Award and the Compasso d’Oro Design Award.
