ADELTA Ball Chair
In 1966, the Ball Chair was presented at the International Furniture Fair in Cologne. It was instantly a sensation, the international breakthrough for Eero Aarnio and the start for a whole line of fibreglass designs for the designer. The Ball Chair was designed by using one of the most simple geometric forms - the ball. By the cutting of a part and fixing it at one point, Aarnio comes to a remarkable result - a completely unconventional shaped piece of furniture. Turning around its own axis, the view to the outer space is variable for the user and thus he/she is not completely excluded from world outside. The Vitra Design Museum notes in their brochure on the Ball Chair: "It is something between a piece of furniture and a piece of architecture and at the same time embodies both the mobile and the established, the fixed."
