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.
