THE STORY BEHIND THE EERO AARNIO-INSPIRED BUBBLE CHAIR
An unmistakable icon of 1960s style, seen in hundreds of film, TV shows and magazine covers, the Bubble Chair is a true legend of the design world. Originally intended to be a massive, ceiling hanging light fixture, Eero Aarnio in his trademark playful style wondered how large a sphere he could create, and the result was one so large a person could fit inside, complete with a couple of cushions for comfort. Moulded from transparent acrylic and attached to the ceiling via a stylish metal chain, it was first released to the public in 1968, and the public immediately took it to their hearts. Even today it just screams classic 60s style.
