Eero Aarnio's Pastil Chair is a joyful classic of modern design from 1967. Resembling a shiny, oversized candy, the gently rocking Pastil is amazingly comfortable – and fun – to sit on. The extraordinary play of form and colour make Pastil the eye-catcher of any room. The chair is made of fibreglass and is thus suitable for outdoor use as well.
Eero Aarnio tells about the design process: ”The Pastil shape can be looked at from many angles. The initial idea could be the same as in a Screw Table i.e. the product shape comes from a small sweetie, pastil, but in this case the idea was, that a lot of empty, cushioned space is sent to the other side of the world inside the Ball Chair. A new round chair would fit in this space, and so the diameter of the Pastil is the same as the opening of the Ball Chair.” The Pastil Chair received the International Design Award by A.I.D. (American Institute of Interior Designers) in 1968.
