Lucite Hanging 'Bubble Chair' by Eero Aarnio for Adelta, Signed, Restored

About

We buffed and polished the acrylic Lucite on this iconic bubble chair designed by Eero Aarnio in 1968 and produced by Aldelta, so that it is in like-new condition. Signed with Eero Aarnio Adelta Made in Finland label so you know this is an authentic example, we caution anyone on buying an unlabelled example due to the fakes on the market of this quintessential modern design. The sleek, instantly recognizable design is fabricated by heated acrylic which is then blown into a shape like a soap bubble. The edge is encased in a chrome steel bar with a length of chain attached to the top which enables these bubble chairs to be suspended. Also included are two gray pad cushions to allow for a comfortable seat. You could also throw on a Mongolian sheepskin pelt to add a little bit of extra luxury. These highly coveted pieces would create a real impact to any space. The clear Lucite allow them to be part of numerous design concepts hung separately or as a pair in a living room, bedroom, den, sunroom or office. They would also be an eye catching addition to a hospitality, retail or corporate location, such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. Great for a Mid-Century Modern home or Postmodern home, also great for contemporary, traditional, transitional, classical and more. Aarnio also designed the ball chair, which was equally iconic to the bubble chair. Measurements: 78" H x 42" diameter. Excellent condition: The Lucite shells were buffed and polished and now are in excellent condition. Upholstered cushions are original vintage condition.
