The Formula Chair Eero Aarnio says to be one of the best chairs he has ever designed. Slightly rocking back- and forwards it is a perfect chair for relaxing with a refreshing drink after a hard days work.
The Formula Chair is the result of the challenge Eero Aarnio has had in mind for years: to combine the sculptural elements of his early fibreglass designs with the ergonomic solutions for comfortable sitting which are the most important aspects in his work on office chairs.
About the Designer Eero Aarnio, a Finnish designer who pioneered the use of plastic in Industrial Design. Plastic material set the designers free to create every shape and use every color they wanted. This gave birth to objects oscillating between function and fun - but always fascinating ones. He studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki (1954-1957) and started in 1962 with his own office as an interior and industrial designer.
Among his creations were Ball Chair (globe chair), Pastil Chair (American Design Award 1968), Tomato Chair, Bubble Chair, Parabel Table, Focus Chair, Tipi.
'When looking at a formula 1 car from above there are two very wide 'armrests' on either side of the driver, and looking from the side there is a high headrest. When you take out the wheels, what is left is clearly a FORMULA Chair and they both move about although the car is faster.' - Eero Aarnio’s note on Formula Chair
