THE STORY BEHIND THE PONY CHAIR FOR CHILDREN
This is one of the most unique designs inspired by one of the most playful, whimsical designers of the 20th Century. Eero Aarnio's Pony Chair was originally designed as an adult 'seat', rather than a chair, as Aarnio sought to explore his art. As he put it: "a seat does not necessarily have to be a chair. It can be anything as it is ergonomically correct. A seat could even be a small and soft Pony on which you can 'ride' or sit sideways." But despite its serious origins, the Pony's toy-like form and inescapable sense of fun meant that it soon became a firm favourite among kids, making the downsizing inevitable. To this day, it can be found in stylish kids' rooms across the world.
