Eero Aarnio, Ball chair, originally designed 1963 for Asko, 46 x 41 x 40 inches, white shell and base with beige upholstery, apparently unmarked. Literature: Fiell, Charlotte & Peter. 1000 Chairs. Cologne: TASCHEN, 1997. p 429. The Ball Chair was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1963. Presented to the world at the International Furniture Fair in Cologne in 1966, it quickly became Aarnio's international breakthrough and an icon of the 1960's space age. Eero Aarnio has always been fascinated by new materials and round shapes – one of his favorite materials is fiberglass, 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”.
