The Ball Chair was designed in 1963 and debuted at the Cologne Furniture Fair in 1966. The chair is one of the most famous and beloved classics of Finnish design and it was the international breakthrough of Eero Aarnio. The Ball Chair can be found in the collections of design museums around the world and it has starred in several movies, music videos and magazine covers.
The Ball Chair is made from fibreglass and upholstered with quality fabrics. There are 12 colour options to choose from.
We are happy to provide you fabric samples to help you decide the perfect colour for your Ball Chair.
Eero Aarnio Originals
The production and sales rights of Mr. Aarnio's best known designs have been transferred to a newly founded Finnish company run by design entrepreneurs in 2016. The iconic designs are sold under a new label called Eero Aarnio Originals. The corner stones of the collection are the Ball Chair, Bubble, Pastil and Pony. In addition, new design classics of the future will be launched later on. The new ownership has a positive impact on both the pricing and quality of the products. The new brand is developed in close collaboration with Mr. Aarnio.
Eero Aarnio is first of all, an innovator who is responsible for some of the most recognisable and best love pieces of furniture of the last century and therefore, his iconic creations have unfortunately led to a multitude of imitations around the world. An important goal for the new venture is raising awareness and significance of original designs. Hence we are determined to fight copies together with our Finnish law firm Dottir, specialised in intellectual property rights.
