Pony ChairEero Aarnio $4,200.00
Children are attracted by the bright colors and the unconventional forms of Eero Aarnio's designs, and the Pony (1973) surely looks like an over-dimensional toy. But it was not a toy that Aarnio intended to create with the Pony. The dimensions conform to an adult's size. Characteristic of Eero Aarnio's other whimsical designs, the Pony is a comfortable seat that might carry you to unknown fields of your own imagination. According to Aarnio: "A chair is a chair, is a chair, is a chair... but 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 soft Pony on which you can 'ride' or sit sideways." The iconic Pony chair is featured in prominent design museums throughout the world and remains an ebullient testament to Eero Aarnio's high-spirit and creativity. Adelta's Pony chair is available in black, green orange and white fabric.

Eero Aarnio was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1932, studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts and opened his own interior and industrial design office in 1962. Aarnio's iconoclastic seating solutions captured the optimism of the pop culture movement of the 1960s with their visually exciting, space-age forms. His designs possess both internationalism and individualism while upholding the traditional Scandinavian concern for aesthetic purity, quality and durability. Aarnio's inquisitive spirit led him to experiment with the synthetic capabilities of fiberglass and acrylic, culminating in his best-known designs, including the iconic Ball chair (1963), Pastille chair (1967) and the revolutionary, suspended Bubble chair (1968). His work resides in collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Eero Aarnio continues to design furniture, lighting, and everyday objects in his studio in Helsinki, where he lives and works.
