Eero Aarnio (born 1932 in Helsinki, Finland) is one of the great innovators of modern furniture design. Credited with an array of distinct and visually striking designs, Aarnio has helped establish Finland in the international design market. In the 1960s, Eero Aarnio began experimenting with plastics, vivid colors and organic form, breaking away from traditional design conventions. His now iconic plastic creations include the Ball (1963) the Pastil (1968), and the Bubble (1968) chairs which echo the pop culture and the spirit of their time. Tomato (1972) and Pony (1973) chairs are other examples of a variety of notable pieces that Aarnio has created over the career that spans five decades. Eero Aarnio is a one-man design workshop: interior designer, industrial designer, graphic artist, photographer.

It has been the ambition of Eero Aarnio to create designs with strong and identifiable character. His work has been said to have a communicative capacity and a psychological effect on the user and viewer. They are objects that stimulate the imagination and challenge seriousness and stiffness. Aside from sound ergonomic design Eero Aarnio follows very few rules when creating his furniture. “A chair must be comfortable for sitting and after that everything is free.”

Many of Aarnio’s works are included in the world’s most prestigious museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the MoMA in New York and the Vitra Museum in Weil am Rhein. Eero Aarnio’s designs have been used in international films, music videos and fashion shoots.
