Designer: Eero Aarnio

First introduced to the masses in 1963, the Ball Chair designed by Eero Aarnio, was a firm favourite with everyone who was anyone during this time. With its quirky, fun and futuristic design and poptastic colours, The Ball Chair was sure to be a big hit with movie makers worldwide. Aarnio’s plan was to create “a room within a room” when he set about its design and if its striking globe-like appearance was enough to make it one of the coolest pieces of furniture around.
To date, the chair has appeared in Dazed and Confused (1993), The Prisoner TV series (1967-1968), Tommy (1975), and Mars Attacks! (1996).
