About this item

One year after he had designed the Pastil Chair in 1968 Eero Aarnio received the American Industrial Award for this chair. The New York Times wrote about the Ball Chair and Pastil Chair at this time: "the most comfortable forms to hold up the human body", and the Conran's Design Dictionary says "they look like essays in period style, perhaps from Barbarella".

The name of the chair refers to a small sweet or candy in a similar shape, with a brightly colored shell and a licorice center. Pastil was often referred to as the "Gyro" chair as its rocking motion swivels in 360 degrees. Aarnio designed this chair for both indoor and outdoor use and imagined it would float in swimming pools, and even be used as a sled to glide down a snow covered hill. The chair is included in many international museum collections.
