The story of Pastil

Eero got the idea for the Pastil when the Ball Chair was shipped around the world after its launch at Cologne's International Furniture Fair in 1966. He thought there was a lot of empty, cushioned space inside the Ball Chair so he designed the Pastil to fit in this void. That's why the diameter of the Pastil is the same as the opening of the Ball Chair.
