Eero Aarnio

Take a look at what Eero Aarnio has to say about his Ball chair

The Mushroom Chair

The Mushroom Chair is one of Aarnio's oldest designs
The first version was made of rattan and proved to be quite a successful product in in the early sixties.

Once again the design is based upon a simple geometric form
The chair was later manufactured in fibreglass like the Ball and the Pastille. It could be used as a stool or as a small table.

This example of high quality design, could be used
everywhere and in combination with nearly everything.
