The production and sales rights of Mr. Aarnio's best known designs have been transferred to a newly founded Finnish company run by design entrepreneurs in 2016. The iconic designs are sold under a new label called Eero Aarnio Originals. The corner stones of the collection are the Ball Chair, Bubble, Pastil and Pony. In addition, new design classics of the future will be launched later on. The new ownership has a positive impact on both the pricing and quality of the products. The new brand is developed in close collaboration with Mr. Aarnio.
Eero Aarnio is the Finnish designer and innovator responsible for some of the most recognisable and best loved pieces of furniture of the last century. Eero is well known for having pioneered the use of new materials (in particular plastic and fiberglass) and processes in order to create the unusual forms. His imagination is fuelled by a continual curiosity, the urge to question ‘why?’, ‘how?’, and ‘might it be possible to…?’
The Ball Chair, The Bubble Chair, The Pony. Eero’s creations aren’t just pieces of furniture, they are characters in their own right. They are extraordinary because they have been designed in an extraordinary way.
Eero Aarnio Originals is the sole authorised manufacturer of the classic designs by Eero Aarnio.
