Iconic Eero Aarnio Black Pastil Chair

US$2,380per item

About

Eero Aarnio made the first prototype of the Pastil chair out of polystyrene, which helped him to verify the measurements, ergonomics and rocking ability. In 1968 he received the American Industrial Award for its comfortable form and unique aesthetic. This 'sweetie' was designed in 1967. Dimensions: 92 cm width x 92 cm depth x 53 cm height Materials: Fibreglass The Story of Pastil After the international success of the ball chair in the 1960s, new Balls were sold and shipped all around the world. One can only imagine the costs of shipping during that time. Eero realized how much empty, cushioned space was sent around the world in packaging crate of the Ball chair. Once again, functionality as his first aim, he thought a new piece of furniture could be fitted in this void. The starting point of design was an improvement to a previous product, a strive to solve a logistic impracticability. From the start Eero new that he wanted to make this new piece of fiberglass. He admired the shine of the Ball chair’s outer surface and wished he could create one that would not need upholstering from the inside. He would need a mold, that would not show the unevenness or ruggedness of the other sides.
