Description

Eero Aarnio's Bubble Chair from 1968 is based on the idea of Aarnio's iconic Ball Chair. Like the Ball Chair, the Bubble Chair has a simple shape – a ball – but is made of different materials and does not have a pedestal but hangs from the ceiling! Eero Aarnio commented on the design: “After I had made the Ball Chair I wanted to have the light inside it and so I had the idea of a transparent ball where light comes from all directions. The only suitable material is acrylic which is heated and blown into shape like a soap bubble”. Thanks to its special acoustics and soft leather seat, it will be like feeling pleasantly isolated even with many people around. Like the Ball Chair, also the Bubble Chair has become a well-known and desired piece of furniture all over the world.

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.
