Towards the end of the 1960's Eero Aarnio revealed one of his most daring designs. With this version of that 1967 Pastil Chair you can experience the unparalled ergonomics and singular charms of this radical piece of furniture. Although it has come to represent that decades innovation and rapid cultural change, the wonderful range of colours and smooth fibreglass exterior would suit any modern living room or study. We chose to reproduce the Pastil Chair because of its constantly surprising grace and comfort and we know you'll love it because it looks formally stunning from every angle.
THE STORY BEHIND THE EERO AARNIO PASTIL CHAIR
Barely a year prior to receiving the American Industrial Design Award, Aarnio unveiled this fantastic design, surely guaranteeing his recognition. Designed to be entirely smooth and embracing the development of moulded fibreglass technology, the Pastil Chair is one of the most arresting designs amongst Aarnio's already remarkable contributions. The shape is indebted to Aarnio's sweet tooth and love of small sugary treats and was visualised by the designer as being able to fill the negative space of his similarly influential Ball Chair.

"I was a bit tired of designing the next fruit bowl or breadbasket or tray or even coffee maker or tea kettle."
