Eero Aarnio was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1932, studied at the Institute of IndustrialArts and opened his own industrial design office in 1962. Aarnio's iconoclastic seatingsolutions captured the optimism of the pop culture movement of the 1960s with theirvisually exciting, space-age forms. His designs possess both internationalism andindividualism while upholding the traditional Scandinavian concern for aesthetic purity,quality and durability. Aarnio's inquisitive spirit led him to experiment with the syntheticcapabilities of fiberglass and acrylic, culminating in his best-known designs, includingthe 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 inLondon, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and the Museum ofModern Art in New York. Eero Aarnio continues to design furniture, lighting, andeveryday objects in hisstudio in Helsinki.
