the bubble chair designed by eero aarnio, 1968. based on the idea of the
ball chair, the bubble chair is actually a reduction of this design. aarnio
said about the bubble chair: "after I had made the ball chair I wanted to
have light inside it and so I had the idea of a transparent ball where light
comes from all directions. the only suitable material is acrylic which is
heated and blown into shape like a soap bubble. since I knew that
dome-shaped skylights were made in this way I contacted the manufacturer and
asked if it would be technically possible to blow a bubble that is bigger
than a hemisphere. the answer was yes. I had a steel ring made, the bubble
was blown, cushions were added and the chair was ready. and again the name
was obvious: BUBBLE." made of acrylglas, chromed steel and your choice of
