Designer: Eero Aarnio
This is the original hanging Bubble Chair imported from Finland. In 1968, Eero turned the design world upside down with his revolutionary hanging bubble chair design - an inspired design that is still turning heads today. They are in current production today from the same facility in Finland that perfected the blown acrylic technique. We import them and they are brand new with nice leather cushions.
This acrylic sphere features removable non-slip cushions and hangs from the ceiling at almost any height. A 6' chain and snap hooks are included and this fits most ceilings but custom hanging lengths are available. It should be hung 6" to 9" from the floor. It is made of smooth clear acrylic and a stainless steel ring. The cushions come in leathers of white, silver, black, and tan. Some interior designers re-upholster in their own fabric.
The Bubble Chair also impresses the sitter by its special acoustics. It swallows the sound and you feel peace and quiet even when it is placed for relaxing and lounging.
Eero Aarnio was - and still is - one of the modern furniture pioneers in using plastics, fibreglass, and acrylic in industrial design. These materials set the designer free to create any shape and use any color they wanted. This gave birth to objects oscillating between function and fun - and always fascinating ones. Aarnio said "after I had made the Ball Chair I wanted to have the light inside it and so I had the idea of a transparent ball where light comes from all directions. The only suitable material is acrylic which is heated and blown into shape like a soap bubble."
This is the original design and the best quality since they have perfected the method of making it for over 50 years. The process of blown acrylic has been mastered and it creates a smooth and glassy sphere. Being connoisseurs of good design these are high quality and we prefer them over inferior reproductions.
