Eero Aarnio was born in 1932 in Finland, where he studied from 1954 to 1957 at
the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki. In 1962 he opened his own office
as an interior and industrial designer where he began to pursue his pioneering
use of plastics in his furniture design. Unencumbered by the limitations of
conventional materials, Aarnio was free to let his creative vision run free,
producing shapes and colors never before seen in modern furniture design. His
work including the Bubble Chair, Pony Chair, Pastil Chair, and Ball Chair have
rightfully taken on the stature and right to be called Modern Classics.
