    Eero Aarnio

    Finnish designer Eero Aarnio was one of several pioneering designers who shaped plastic into extraordinary forms in the 1960s. Born in Helsinki in 1932, Aarnio studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki, and soon after opened an interior and industrial design office. One of his first experiments with plastic yielded the Ball Chair, which The New York Times described as one of “the most comfortable forms to hold the human body”.

    The now iconic design – a fibreglass reinforced polyester sphere with one side cut off – has been used in countless films and photo shoots, and is included in the collections of some of the world’s most prestigious museums.

    Aarnio followed this success with other award-winning designs, including the Pastil, Polaris, Tomato and Pony chairs.

    From his studio in Finland, Aarnio continues to create functional and whimsical designs, including Puppy, a moulded plastic creation that’s both a chair and a child’s plaything.
