The Ball Chair, alternately known as the Globe Chair, is perhaps one of the most iconically retro mid-century modern pieces I can think of. Is there any other piece from this design era that screams 60s so loudly (and proudly)?
The Ball Chair made its debut in 1966 at the International Furniture Fair (IFF) in Cologne to great sensation and signaled the beginning of Aarnio’s successful international career.
Consisting of a fiberglass shell and an upholstered interior, the Ball Chair rotates on its own axis at the base. As such, it’s described as a room within a room, since, as you can see below, it offers quite a bit of privacy for a lounge chair.
Graphic designer, Jeffrey Kern’s, graphically-inspired living room features the Ball Chair, in the April issue of Elle Decor.
