About Eero Aarnio

It's time to get inspired with retro-futurism! Ahead of his time, Finnish designer Eero Aarnio popped out our eyeballs with a series of chairs like something taken straight out of a sci-fi movie. Combining modern interior charm with vintage seduction is no easy task when spicing up your decor. To break away from the norm, a few iconic classics get this task right perfectly: the bubble chair, a tomato chair, a ball, and the pastil. One of the greatest innovators of modern furniture design, Eero's collective 60s colourful palettes and rocking 70s elements help set a cool and sophisticated backdrop to today's trendy pads. Awarded the American Industrial Design award in 1968, Aarnio's designs were essential to 1960s popular culture. His dynamic creations reflect an industrial style that balances sitting and sound ergonomics. Refusing to follow the rules, he instead bent them. He installed a red phone into his ball chair of edgeless shapes and sound. This space within a space design created an illusion of being unseen and secluded; he said, "solving a problem is always the most important thing". "I design functional everyday objects, and I want to get the most out of those objects." Form and functionality have always been vital elements in Scandinavian design; however, Eero's style incorporates playfulness and poptastic hues into his innovative furniture. Since Eero began experimenting with plastics, vivid colours, and organic forms in his Helsinki one-man-band studio, his inventions became ideal for sets in famous period science-fiction films. The simple geometric forms made an appearance in Dazed and Confused (1993), the opening credits of The Prisoner TV series (1967-1968), Tommy (1975), and Mars Attacks! (1996). The iconic chair design has also been used in numerous magazine covers and television shows. Many of Aarnio's works are also included in the world's most prestigious museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York, and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein. Are you a fan of these Eero Aarnio ball chairs as much as we are? Then, let Vinterior take your interior colour to a whole new level.
