The Ball Chair
Remember these? Where we went to college, these were all over the library. We called them womb chairs and they were good for one thing: sleeping.
With that in mind, we were so glad to find out where they came from - they came from the mind of the Finnish designer Aarnio Eero. His head must have been exploding in the mid 60's, because Eero designed all the super cool plastic seating that typified the era and makes you think of Clockwork Orange. He is still designing and some of his new stuff is just as good. You can find it all at www.eero-aarnio.com. MGR
