Eye Candy: Bubble Chairs

In 1968, after he conceived the Ball Chair, Eero Aarnio, a pioneer in using plastics in industrial design, created the Bubble Chair as a reduction of its predicessor. He wanted the chair to be light-filled, and since, as Aarnio maintained, "There is no nice way to make a clear pedestal," it had to hang from the ceiling. Iconic in shape, the space-age design is as fresh today as it was 45 years ago. Original Eero Aarnio Bubble Chairs are still to be had. To find a retailer near you, visit Eero Aarnio. (An original clocks in at around $4,700 whereas a knock off will set you back around $900.)
