Already one of his most playful designs, the Eero Aarnio Ball Chair is a perfect fit for a children's version. Although no piece is more deserving of iconic status than this '60s fibreglass marvel, its unique curvature compliments rather than overwhelms any stylish interior. An exact reproduction of design and materials condensed down for child comfort, your kids will be gleefully tucked away in luxorious multi-coloured cashmere and that modernist spherical casing. Although a cinematic shortcut to style since its creation, that grace and form are also just plain fun. By shrinking it down our VOGA.com version embraces this whilst remaining faithful to what makes it so exciting.
THE STORY BEHIND THE BALL CHAIR FOR CHILDREN
Debuting in Cologne at the 1966 International Furniture Fair, the Ball Chair marks Eero Arnio's first international exposure and fame. Combining his subtle grasp of architectural form and desire to simply make something as comfortable as possible, the Ball chair is successful both as an art object and functional seat. Although it has become intrinsically connected to 1960s popular culture and science fiction, here at VOGA.com we believe it remains extremely effective in the home and at maximising your kids comfort.
