The bubble chair was designed by
Eero Aarnio in 1968 in Finland. It is
made of acrylic on steel frame and leather or polyurethane fabric
cushions. It is distributed by Aarnio Originals. The chair is
suspended from above leading to a floating or bubble-like sensation.
It is considered an industrial design classic and advanced the usage
of plastics in furniture design. The chair is considered modernist or
spaceage and is often used to symbolise the 1960s period.
