Mid Century Modern Ball Chair

Eero Aarnio designed the ball chair in 1963. The ball chair entered the pop art hall of fame 25 years later and continues to grow in popularity to this day. The Ball Chair is as visually appealing as it is functional. Sitting in the chair, one can hardly escape the feeling of being in a separate space within a room.



Making the Eero Aarnio Ball Chair Icon

Finnish furniture designer Eero Aarnio created the original Ball Chair in 1963. Considered a classic of industrial design it is also referred to as The Globe Chair. Many color combos are now available, however the original Ball Chair was created with one color option, a white outer shell and red cloth interior. The original Ball Chair features a 5 panel interior liner. The original shell was made of fiberglass with a consistent glossy finish. Sitting on a wide circular base, the Ball Chair turns a full 360 degrees on its axis.


Feel like reading a good book, having a private phone conversation or a doing little browsing? Sitting in the chair, one can hardly escape the feeling of being in a separate space within a room. Still gaining in popularity, The Ball Chair is as visually appealing as it is functional.

About Cashmere Wool Tweed

swatchCashmere wool fiber is obtained from “Cashmere goats.” Historically, fine-haired Cashmere goats have been called Capra hircus laniger, as if they were a subspecies of the domestic goat Capra Hircus. Cashmere goats produce a double fleece that consists of a fine, soft undercoat or under-down of hair mingled with a straighter and much coarser outer coating of hair called Guard Hair. For the fine under-down to be sold and processed further, it must be de-haired. De-hairing is a mechanical process that separates the coarse hairs from the fine hair. After this separating process the resulting premium “cashmere” is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn.
