Eero Aarnio Originals – the sole authorised manufacturer of classic designs by Eero Aarnio
Eero Aarnio made the first prototype of the Pastil chair out of polystyrene, which helped him to verify the measurements, ergonomics and rocking ability. In 1968 he received the American Industrial Award for its comfortable form and unique aesthetic. This 'sweetie' was designed in 1967.
“I thought, there is a lot of empty, cushioned space sent around the world inside the Ball chair. A new round chair would fit in this void, and so the diameter of the Pastil is the same as the opening of the Ball chair. It is amazing how comfortable it is to sit in such a shiny, oversized ‘sweetie’. It is made from fibreglass, which means it is suited to inside and outdoors pursuits.”
