The chair is inspired by the Ball model. The Ball Chair, despite having an absolutely futuristic design, was created back in 1963. Its exceptional shape is the result of a perfect mix of size and formal balance. Aarnio begins the construction of the chair in 1962 in the living room of the house. The Aarnio family, just moved into a new house, needed a chair that was large, comfortable and elegant, so Eero Aarnio designed the Ball Chair. He began by designing a normal chair and as the project simplified the shape, it was slowly reduced to a sphere. The designer then hung a one-by-one drawing on the wall and began to imagine how he would find himself inside the armchair. He therefore pretended to sit down and his wife marked the position of her head with a pencil so that she could determine the height of the seat. The project went ahead and the other measures, by virtue of the circular form, came as a result. The Ball Chair is certainly one of the major icons of modern design and is still a unique and inimitable piece perfect for any modern furniture thanks to the wide choice of colors available.
The name of the item is used to describe the product as an inspiration and it can not be considered as an original piece.
