The Mickey Ball Chair is the ultimate dream come true for fans of Disney and design, combining two pop culture icons – world’s most famous mouse and a masterpiece of futuristic furniture. The limited edition Mickey Ball Chair was launched in 2018 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the beloved mouse’s silver screen debut: Mickey Mouse first appeared on film in 1928 in Disney’s short film Steamboat Willie.
The original Ball Chair was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1963 and presented at the International Furniture Fair in Cologne in 1966, and it became Aarnio's international breakthrough. Eero Aarnio has always been fascinated by new materials and round shapes - one of his favourite materials is fibreglass, which gives the chair a free, elastic shape. The round shell of the Ball Chair is simple yet ingenious, and has often been referred to as a “room in a room”.
The Ball Chair is one of the best-known classics of Finnish design, even though its modernist, futuristic design differs from the natural and minimalist Scandinavian design traditions. The Ball Chair can be found in the collections of design museums around the world, and during the decades it has been featured in numerous movies, music videos and magazine covers.
