About the DesignerEero Aarnio
Finland (1932 - )
Born in 1932, acclaimed Finnish designer Eero Aarnio changed the face of industrial design through his groundbreaking use of plastic. The Pastil Chair, reminiscent of a bright piece of candy, is an example of his highly innovative vision. The New York Times described the Pastil Chair and the iconic Ball Chair as "the most comfortable forms to hold up the human body." With its smooth fiberglass body and perfectly contoured seat, you can showcase this striking piece anywhere inside or outside your home for practical comfort as well as maximum visual impact.
An aesthetic marvel and solid seat, the Tomato Chair is a stunning and functional accent inside and outside the home. Why is this piece named the Tomato Chair? The name comes not from a resemblance of an actual Tomato but rather the word itself. If a perfunctory glance at the Tomato Chair suggests a complex structure, closer inspection reveals an ingeniously simple combination of three spheres with the same diameter - two are armrests and one is stretched to form a comfortable back - and a half-circle which forms the chair's seat. Seen from various angles, the Tomato Chair appears to be as much a sculpture as a chair.
