Eero Aarnio Originals – the sole authorised manufacturer of classic designs by Eero Aarnio
The Mushroom is one of Eero’s oldest designs and in its fibreglass form is part of the same design family that includes the Ball Chair, Pastil and Tomato. It can be used as a stool or a small table. The fibreglass Mushroom was designed in 1967 by Eero Aarnio.
“My first commercial design idea was a cane stool which I wove myself in 1954. It was the first version of the Mushroom. The first fibreglass samples were only produced in the 1970s, and the actual production did not start until the end of the 1990s, but as the size, dimensions and functions were the same, the name also stuck.”
